Responsiveness to Intervention (RTI) is progressing its way through school districts and could be used as a new model for identifying learning disabilities, thus replacing the discrepancy model of learning disability identification. Although RTI was established within IDEA 2005 and the No Child Left Behind Act, school districts are slowly transitioning to thisinnovative, three-tiered process. The purpose of this study was to explore the implementation of RTI and introduce its use to elementary school teachers. Further, another goal of the study was to ascertain its connection to reading instruction and intervention already present in one elementary school and their views of RTI.
