Response to Intervention (RTI²) Statewide Parent Training Scheduled

As of July 1, 2014, RTI² (Response to Intervention) will be the problem solving model used in Tennessee schools to help identify a student with a Specific Learning Disability.

The Disability Coalition on Education (DCE) is hosting trainings for parents and community members in each of the 8 Department of Education regions across Tennessee, in partnership with the Dept. of Education’s RTI consultants in each region.

These sessions will provide an overview of Tennessee’s RTI² framework; explain how this new model will be used to identify the need for special education intervention, and how this transition will ultimately impact students in special education services after July 1.
