Partners With RTI Action Network
RTI Action Network
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.
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.
