  16. ULSS A SHIFT IN THINKING… • In the past, services were provided to students once it was determined that they needed academic and/or behavioral support. • Now, services should be provided to students immediately if achievement begins to lag.

  17. RTI • An approach that requires educators to match instruction • to the academic needs of students (differentiated instruction). • Responsibility for student achievement is a team effort (student, family, regular and special educators, other service providers) • Intervention is most effective within the context of the regular classroom. • Most modifications are considered good teaching practices for ALL students.

  18. WHY THIS MAKES SENSE: • Everyone has a unique learning style. If we appropriately differentiate instruction to meet the needs of diverse learners, achievement will likely improve. • Sometimes, we need help learning something new. We may need extra one-on-one support or a model in order to accomplish a task – that doesn’t make us special education adults, it makes us human.
