Response To Intervention, a proven, research-based model for assessing students, problem solving, and designing instruction and tiered interventions for students who struggle with learning or behavior, is widely used in K-12 settings. Often overlooked, however, is the power of RTI for addressing the learning and behavioral needs of young children. In RTI and Early Childhood, Joseph Casbarro and Helene Hanson present an overview of the RTI model, its relation to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) and differentiated instruction (DI), and provides numerous examples of targeted Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions recommended for the youngest learners with typical preschool curricular areas, including

  • Language development (receptive and expressive language)
  • Emergent literacy (reading readiness)
  • Physical development (health, nutrition, movement)
  • Social-emotional development (social skills and behavior)
  • Cognitive development (numbers & math, science & discovery)
  • Creative expression

The guide lists the eight indicators of effective early childhood curricula so that educators can review their own curriculum to ensure it is aligned with proper design, since delivering the core curriculum to all students is the first tier of RTI. It recommends specific Tier 2 and Tier 3 supports for young children along with general guidelines on when to use them, identifies evidence-based assessment methods and tools, and lists commercially published assessment instruments is also provided.

This concise yet comprehensive laminated guide also includes critical information on the design and purpose of RTI problem-solving teams, the role of the paraeducator, and the Recognition & Response model for use in pre-K.
