Our certificate in response to intervention (RTI), also known as response to instruction, is designed to provide teachers, school psychologists, and behavioral consultants with the ability to provide early, effective assistance to children who are having difficulty learning.

You will learn how to lessen the chance of academic failure through early intervention, skills for frequent progress measurement, and intensive, research-based instructional interventions for children who are having academic difficulties.
