Students with communication impairments, much like other academic content areas, can benefit from Response to Intervention (RtI) services provided by the classroom teacher.
Most children naturally learn to use expressive and receptive language throughout their curriculum and school day. However, about 20% require additional instruction through RtI. This page provides various resources to help teachers implement language instruction in Tier II supports (through the classroom or small groups). Through progress monitoring and evidence-based instruction, you can determine if the interventions are successful. A small number of these students will require even more intensive specialized instruction from a speech-language pathologist.
