Response to Intervention (RtI)
Response to Intervention (RtI) is a multi-level prevention system that typically provides interventions through three levels of intensity or prevention. My-Behavior-Resource.com adopts the four-tier RtI model used in the State of Georgia. We believe that this expanded model ensures that a clear, systematic approach to providing interventions is easier to manage and provides a better framework for decision-making.
Tier I lays the groundwork for school-wide interventions and provides the foundation for building better individualized interventions as students do not respond to this first level of intervention.
Tier II provides group and function-based interventions for students who do not respond to the school-wide plan.
In Tier III, an individualized, function-based plan is implemented to address the needs of specific students.
Tier IV is the final step in the process and may include identification for Special Education services.
When implemented together, this four-tiered plan provides schools with a seamless process for addressing challenging behaviors in a public school setting. Click here to see how the tiers work together.
