The Response-To-Intervention Team

This team of teachers, administrators, and teacher specialists, including the school psychologist, social worker, and speech-language pathologist, meets at school on a regular basis. The team may make recommendations to parents and classroom teachers, suggest some short-term interventions, or may even ask permission for further assessment.

Interventions may include:

Providing a student with instructional, behavioral, social, environmental and/or curriculum supports. Intervention effectiveness is monitored and evaluated.
