This packet is created to help teachers and SLPs implement support for a student with a language delay in the classroom with RtI.
To qualify for special education services, students must demonstrate two things. First, educational impact (checklists included to document academic including specific common core standards). Second, lack of response to interventions or ongoing need for significant interventions. This packet helps you prove both with data. If you take a concern to your special education team and have data to prove a student isn't progressing with your help, you have documented the need for specialized instruction from a speech-language pathologist.
This packet is 30 pages in length giving you a lot of support to develop a program for RtI. You'll get everything you need to support RtI. Once you use these forms, you'll add your own activities for your student to practice each week. Then help your student track the data on the included forms.
Students with communication impairments, much like other academic content areas, require Response to Intervention services provided by the classroom teacher. This packet will provide you with a basic system for screening your student, identifying areas of delay, providing you with a series of intervention strategies to choose from, and progress monitoring forms. Please always consult with your school speech-language pathologist before you begin the RtI process with a student. Keep in mind that every school has a different RtI process, and you might need to combine these forms with required forms in your district. Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier educational approach aimed at early identification and support of students whose learning needs are not being met. It involves “the practice of providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals, and applying child response data to important educating decisions.” (Batsche et al., 2005) RtI is a regular education initiative. It is meant for all students. RtI is not special education.
