Response to Intervention (RTI) and Academic Intervention Services (AIS) are rigorous academic supports that focus on early identification of skill deficits and intensive responses aimed to prevent learning gaps from increasing while supporting student development in targeted areas.  While RTI was initially utilized in Special Education settings, its thorough methodology has been successful in improving outcomes for all students.  These programs emphasize highlighting specific problems and addressing them with research supported solutions


CASDA’s Struggling Learners faculty possess comprehensive knowledge of RTI concepts and have successfully applied this approach in diverse classroom settings. Faculty members meet with district, building and instructional leadership to discuss current instructional practices, areas of concern and develop a strategic plan for RTI implementation. This process often includes:

  • Seminar presentations outlining RTI concepts and strategies.

  • Establishing district committee and formulation of SMART Goals to guide and evaluate RTI implementation.

  • Classroom observations.

  • Focused coaching for instructors who will utilize RTI.

  • Follow up training, support and guidance.

  • Support and training for Academic Intervention Services (AIS) alongside RTI programming.




RTI and AIS are powerful catalysts to improve student outcomes. Their conceptual clarity and intensive, research-driven approach have made them cornerstones of instructional practice in districts throughout the country. CASDA’s faculty experts will help school districts utilize RTI and AIS to offer students greater support and enhanced learning opportunities.
