NASP Partners With RTI Action Network 

RTI Network Button

RTI Action Network

The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) is a Founding Partner of the RTI Action Network, a national initiative dedicated to the effective implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI) in school districts nationwide. The unique partnership represents an important collaboration among general education, special education, family groups, and the private sector to support implementation of RTI. Such collaboration is critical to successful adoption of RTI practices at the local level.

Why RTI?

RTI is a promising multi-tiered approach to help struggling learners. It replies on and fosters collaboration between the key adults in a child’s schooling: parents, teachers, specialists, and administrators. All interventions are evidence-based and can be implemented in general education, special education, or both. Student progress is closely monitored at each stage to determine the need for further or different interventions and/or instruction. Students get the help they need to succeed before they fall behind or fail.
