Assisting students struggling with mathematics: Response to Intervention (RtI) for elementary and middle schools
This practice guideprovides eight specific recommendations to help educators address the challenge of reducing the number of children who struggle with mathematics by using “response to intervention” (RtI) as a means of both identifying students who need more help and providing these students with high-quality interventions. The guide provides practical, clear information on critical topics related to RtI and is based on the best available evidence as judged by the panel of researchers and practitioners. Recommendations in this guide should not be construed to imply that no further research is warranted on the effectiveness of particular strategies used in RtI for students struggling with mathematics.
