How is early intervening different from the Response to Intervention (RtI) process?
The term “Early Intervening Services” refers to a broad application of support services and includes activities such as professional development, evaluation, and support for students who are not yet eligible under the IDEA 2004. The RtI is the process of gathering and examining data for use in developing and judging the effectiveness of research-based interventions used with students in the context of evaluating a student for a specific learning disability. The response to intervention process for developing and judging the effectiveness of research-based interventions with an individual student occurs within the broader context of early intervening services.
