RTI and Special Populations

The Council for Exceptional Children has invited several heavy-hitters in the world of response to intervention to write on a monthly basis about different aspects of the educational framework on a monthly. This month's blog series will be written by Janette Klingner, a professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder and a specialist on special education for bilingual students.

Last month's entries were written by Lynn Boyer, the director of special education for West Virginia, on how to implement RTI on a statewide basis. All of these experts offer useful insight into the complexities of implementing RTI in an effective manner; they're well worth a read.

And, for a parent's perspective on RTI, the Wrightslaw blog has posted a good overview written by Susan Bruce, a parent advocate in South Carolina. Her article introduces the concept, and also suggests a series of questions parents should ask their schools about the process.
