What is RtI: Response to intervention (RtI) is a method of academic intervention used to provide early, systematic assistance to students who are having difficulty learning.  RtI seeks to prevent academic failure through early intervention, frequent progress monitoring, and increasingly intensive research-based instructional interventions for students who continue to have difficulty.  RtI is a multi-tiered approach for aiding students that is adjusted and modified as needed.
