RTI (Part 5): A Closer Look at Tier 3
This module describes students who require intense interventions, components of Tier 3 reading interventions, students’ response to these interventions, parent involvement, and issues related to English language learners.
Note: The Fuchs model of RTI identifies Tier 3 as special education. Indiana’s Vision of RTI provides intense interventions (Tier 3) for any student whose data indicates that need. Referral for evaluation for special education services for specific learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, or language impairment takes place when a student shows no or minimal progress toward goals.
