Students with Disabilities and RtI
Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) and RtI
With a new Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) rule that requires the analysis of data following intensive intervention, district and school staff have questions regarding the relationship between the new SLD rule and the state’s concurrent emphasis on a school-wide system’s approach to Response to Intervention (RtI). Although districts are encouraged to fully implement a RtI framework, RtI, as articulated by the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), is not required.
These documents from Wisconsin's Department of Public Instruction are designed to help schools prepare for implementing the new SLD rule, and to answer questions about its relationship with RtI.
