Course Overview

The RTI (Response to Intervention) Model is a framework that has been designed for use in schools to provide comprehensive intervention and support to students at risk of literacy underachievement, including those with dyslexia. It is a prevention oriented approach linking assessment and instruction that is used to inform educators’ decisions about how best to teach their students. A central goal of RTI is to minimise the well-documented academic and behavioural risks associated with long-term poor learning outcomes.

This course will enable principals and teachers to understand and deliver the RTI model in their schools. Co-designed by SPELD Victoria and The Dyslexia-SPELD Foundation WA specifically for Victorian schools.
