The general information in this section covers a broad range of issues and provides a solid background on SLD and RTI. Use these materials to build your own knowledge of these topics, distribute copies to others who need an understanding of these issues, or use the information presented here as the foundation for critical conversations as you prepare to change the SLD determination procedures in your state, district, or school.
The tools in this section will help you begin to make changes in the procedures you use for specific learning disability determination. We developed these tools to help you start the necessary conversations and consider the many factors that influence the SLD determination process.
The information, activities, and worksheets in this manual will guide you and your team as you examine the current SLD determination process in your state, district, or school; define your challenges and your conceptualization of SLD; and design and enact new models of SLD determination.
This tool will help you design and implement responsiveness to intervention models in the context of SLD determination. This manual provides comprehensive coverage of RTI features, based on current research.
The PowerPoint presentations and handouts in this section will help you lead discussions about SLD, RTI, and the process of change in the context of revising SLD determination procedures. You must have Microsoft PowerPoint installed on your computer to use these files.
As your schools move forward with changes in SLD determination procedures--possibly adopting responsiveness to intervention as one component--parents likely will have questions. The materials in this section are designed to help you answer these questions. You may want to give copies of these materials to parents whose children will be affected by changes at your school.
