Understand How to Use the RTI Model, and its Relationship to Child Find

Response to Intervention (RTI) is a comprehensive assessment and intervention process that schools use to identify at-risk students and monitor the academic progress of all general education students. RTI is also a practice of applying student’s performance data to educational decisions. Understanding the RTI process and Child Find can be daunting.

In this session, two nationally recognized special education attorneys Lori Kirsch-Goodwin, Esq. and Hope N. Kirsch, Esq. will provide a comprehensive overview of tiered interventions and Child Find obligations of schools. Lori and Hope will provide a comprehensive overview of the RTI process and of Child Find. This session will help schools understand how to use the RTI model, and its relationship to Child Find.

Avoid getting into hot water by relying exclusively on RTI – understand the difference between RTI and Child Find, how they exist co-extensively, and how RTI overlaps with the Child Find obligations of schools.
