A Response to Intervention (RTI) framework has become widely used as a means to improve academic performance in struggling learners. However, when applying such programs with bilingual students, adaptations may be necessary in order to address linguistic and cultural variables that are unique to those students. The presenter will use a case example to illustrate how RTI can be applied to meet the unique needs of bilingual learners. Discussion will explore special considerations to take when screening, providing interventions, monitoring progress, and making educational decisions.
