A Parent's Guide to Response to Intervention

New York State Education Department

This pamphlet provides parents, families and others with information regarding Response to Intervention (RtI). RtI is a process used in schools to provide well-designed instruction, closely monitor all students’ progress and provide additional instructional supports to students who are struggling. This additional help is to assist those students to keep up with learning in their classrooms, particularly in the areas of reading and math. At the end of this pamphlet, there is a reference list which provides sources for additional information for parents and websites where these resources can be found.

The pamphlet is now available in Spanish, Korean, Russian, Chinese, and Haitian Creole (see link below).
