Supporting students with math difficulty can be challenging. When teaching students with math difficulty, it is important to provide explicit and systematic instruction, teach math vocabulary and symbols, use the concrete-representational-abstract framework, and incorporate fluency building, effective questioning and error analysis.

This series of videos provides brief instructional examples for supporting students who need intensive instruction in the area of numeracy and counting. Within college- and career-ready standards numeracy and counting are taught in Pre-K through Grade 1. These videos may be used as each concept is introduced, or with students in higher grade levels who continue to struggle with the concepts. Special education teachers, math interventionists, and others working with struggling students may find these videos helpful.

This document includes an overview of the data-based individualization (DBI) process. DBI is a research-based process for individualizing and intensifying interventions through the systematic use of assessment data, validated interventions, and research-based adaptation strategies. The handout provides a graphic representation of this process and an overview of the 5 steps of the DBI process. 

Response to Intervention (RTI) and Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) are frameworks for integrating instruction, evidence-based interventions, and assessments to meet the academic and behavior needs of all students. The essential components of MTSS are as follows: screening, progress monitoring, a multilevel prevention system, and data-based decision making (National Center on Response to Intervention, 2010).

The Academic Intervention Tools Chart was developed to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select academic intervention programs that best meet their individual needs. This tools chart presents information about studies that have been conducted about academic intervention programs. The first tab, Study Quality, includes ratings from our TRC members on the technical rigor of the study design. The second tab, Study Results, includes information about the results of the studies.

This collection is designed to assist you in learning more about Response to Intervention and to encourage you to reach out and involve the other stakeholders that are critical to RTI success. This link provides insights into the perspectives of several important stakeholder groups.

The National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI) has developed this resource that provides a definition of RTI, reviews essential RTI components, and responds to frequently asked questions.This document lays out four essential components of RTI: screening, progress monitoring, multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making. The information presented is intended to provide educators with guidance for RTI implementation that reflects research and evidence-based practices, and supports the implementation of a comprehensive RTI framework.

In this webinar Dr. Tessie Rose Bailey, a technical assistance provider for the National Center on Response to Intervention, provides an overview of the essential components of RTI including screening, progress monitoring, a school-wide, multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making.

The Behavioral Intervention Tools Chart was developed to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select behavioral interventions that best meet their individual needs. This tools chart presents information about studies that have been conducted about behavioral intervention programs. The first tab, Study Quality, includes ratings from our TRC members on the technical rigor of the study design. The second tab, Study Results, includes information about the findings of the studies.

The Behavioral Progress Monitoring Tools Chart was developed to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select behavioral progress monitoring tools that best meet their individual needs. The Center's Technical Review Committee (TRC) on behavioral progress monitoring independently established a set of criteria for evaluating the scientific rigor of the behavioral progress monitoring tools.
