Voices From The Field

The Collaborative announces the new research brief The Nexus of Response to Intervention (RTI) and the Identification of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD): Guidelines for District-Level Implementation.  The brief provides a history of RTI, outlines guidance on special education referral and eligibility across states in the context of RTI, describes how districts and schools have operationalized guidance from their states, and offers district-level implications and considerations of RTI practices in the identification of students with SLD.
