Response To Intervention

Response To Intervention Start Up Materials

It has taken me awhile to get to this point, but I finally feel that I have a handle on how to provide tiered services to general education students, see my special education students, and stay sane!

I hope the materials in this section will help you too!

In this section, you will find:

  • Teacher Referral Form
  • Compensatory Strategies For Classroom Teachers
  • Articulation Screener
  • Language Screener
  • Organization Tools For Screenings
  • Data Sheets
  • Parent Notification Of Services
  • Progress Monitoring Tool

To have your own copy of all the templates, remember to make a copy and save it to your own drive!!! Otherwise, all materials are view only. The reason for this is that you will be the owner of the copied version and no one will be able to see it unless you share it with them.

Teacher Referral Form


Recommended Use: 

When a teacher has a referral for a student, I send them the link to the referral form. The teachers fills out the form and then presses submit. All the responses, go to ONE spreadsheet. This is why I LOVE this system. I can keep track of all my referrals in ONE spot. 

Compensatory Strategies For Classroom Teachers


Recommended Use: 

Sometimes student don't qualify for services but could benefit from some classroom strategies. In this section, I attached some general teacher handouts on helpful classroom modification for all areas of communication.

I also use these strategies as students move back to tier 2 or tier 1 to help with generalization of progress!

Articulation Screener


Recommended Use:

This is a non-standardized articulation screening tool.  On the data sheet, the sounds are listed on the left and the other 4 columns are reserved for recording errors at the word and sentence level. It is possible to record responses over two different days which is convenient for collecting pre- and post-treatment data. 

The phonemes are color coded by age. The legend is located at the end of the screening tool. This allows a user to quickly glance if a child is making errors that are expected for her/her age. The age ranges are approximate and were created after taking an average from various sources and clinical experience. 

The flashcards are divided in rows by sounds. The columns are divided by word position: initial, medial, final.  There are suggested sentences that a child could repeat to gather data on sound production at the sentence level. 

Language Screening Tool


Recommended Use:

I use this non-standardized screening form to help decide if a student needs a tiered language services and I use the form to track progress and help to decide if a child should move from one tier to another.

Organization Tools For Screenings


Recommended Use:

This section has some simple tools to organize referrals and the results of the referrals. I use this to track my RTI caseload.

Data Sheets


  • Here is the link for the Data Tracking forms: Data Tracking
  • Be sure to watch this "How To" video first for helpful tips: YouTube Video

Recommended Use:

I use these forms to take bi-weekly data and the graph the progress at the end of a 12 week cycle. I also keep all my students in one Google Sheet to help stay organized.

Parent Notification Of Services


Recommended Use: 

I use this form to notified parents of services or lack of services. Remember to save a copy to your own drive so you can modify it to fit your needs.

Progress Monitoring Tool


Recommended Use: 

I use the progress monitoring tool to track progress in language development over time.
