The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004 authorized education agencies to use Response to Intervention (RTI) models to meet the needs of students with special needs. There are many tools and ideas to do this and to monitor the progress of students, but new concepts and plans that are working are less frequently available. Here are a mix of sites, which provide networking possibilities, as well as approaches that are being used by many states.
Free resources for students with special needs:
