Parent Rights in the Era of RTI
If a school is using an RTI approach, what rights do parents have and what strategies can be used to address identification issues? This publication, Parent Rights in the Era of RTI includes information on:
- RTI Use across States—The manner in which states incorporate RTI into SLD identification varies dramatically.
- Child Find—Your school district’s legal obligation to “find” all children who may have a disability and, because of their disability, need special education services.
- Rights to Evaluation—Every parent has the right to request an evaluation at any time to determine if their child has a disability and what that child’s educational needs are.
- Strategies for Addressing Identification Issues—The process of determining whether your child has a disability such as a learning disability and needs special education cannot go on indefinitely.
This publication was created as a companion piece to A Parent’s Guide to Response to Intervention (RTI). Together, both publications will provide parents with the information they need when their child’s school is using the Response-to-Intervention approach.
