Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

This evolution, however, is not taking place without incident. The RTI movement, has generated a new tension between the desire to apply early high-quality interventions to struggling students and the legal duty to comply with IDEA’s traditional child-find requirements. And, the child-find mandate of IDEA represents a legal requirement, violation of which can mean real liability for schools.

This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the RTI process and of Child Find. Avoid getting into hot water by relying exclusively on RTI; understand the difference between RTI and Child Find, and how they exist co-extensively. Response to Intervention (RTI) is a comprehensive assessment and intervention process schools use to identify at-risk students and monitor the academic progress of all general education students.

In this session, two nationally recognized special education attorneys Hope N. Kirsch and Lori Kirsch-Goodwin , will provide a complete overview of tiered interventions and Child Find obligations of schools. Lori and Hope will provide a detailed knowledge of the RTI process and of Child Find. This session will help schools understand how to use the RTI model and its relationship to Child Find.
