Child Find in the RTI Era: Common Misconceptions, Problem Situations and Avoidable Disputes

Price: $250.00


Presented by Jose Martín, Esq.

What happens when your RTI efforts run into your child find obligations? What do you do when a parent of a child receiving RTI services demands an evaluation for special education eligibility? RTI-oriented regular education intervention programs for struggling students are expanding rapidly, but the IDEA's child-find obligations have not changed – causing legal tension, a host of new and difficult questions, and an emerging segment of case law.

In this recorded audio conference, Jose Martín will address modern RTI/child-find questions, including:

  • Is RTI legally mandated?
  • How do you respond to parental requests for evaluation when a student is still progressing?
  • How do you make effective use of RTI programs while also avoiding failure-to-identify challenges and disputes with parents?
  • What are the most important aspects of OSEP's memo on child find and RTI?
  • And more

As a backdrop to these questions, Jose will review the modern legal cases that illustrate the best way for school staff to navigate this difficult legal landscape, and help administrators identify practical strategies schools can use now to prevent and avoid child find claims in RTI-capable school systems.
