Summary The recent reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) has allowed schools to use Response-to-Intervention (RTI) as an alternative to discrepancy-based models for identification of specific learning disabilities. However, there tends to be a gap between school and home communication in a child's educational choices. The development of collaborative partnerships between parents and professionals is too often unsuccessful. Parents want to understand the types of academic and behavioral support that their child is receiving, particularly when he or she is struggling. Nevertheless, parents may not always be able to grasp the educational terminology that teachers use or what those terms mean for their child. In addition, teachers may not have enough time to train parents or even explain to them the particulars of new initiatives in the school. RTI offers hope that all children will receive better and more adequate instruction in math and reading. There are important issues that parents need to be aware of. This project sets out to educate parents in the process of Response-to-Intervention.
