Most American schools are implementing some form of a service delivery model called Response to Intervention (RTI). In this post, we bring you an article by Drs. Sandy Grether and Linda Sickman on how the tiered system of supports in RTI can be applied to students with AAC needs. They discuss the role of the SLP and explain best practices in supporting AAC learners using this approach. Their article was part of a special issue entitled ‘AAC from Preschool to High School: Building Success with Evidence-Based Interventions,’ guest edited by Karen Fallon. The online version, available here, is hosted at the University of New Hampshire.   Grether, S.M, & Sickman, L.S. (2008). AAC and RTI: Building classroom-based strategies for every child in the classroom. Seminars in Speech and Language, 29, 155-164.
