Since the definition of specific learning disability has not changed, it seems that through cognitive assessments we would still need to show a "disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written.." along with a failure to respond to intervention.


If a student has been in special education for a substantial period of time and is being re-evaluated for eligiblity, does their time spent in the special education classroom with individualized, specialized startegies for learning count as RtI if they still have not progressed to a point that would permit them to fucntion in a regular classroom enviornment in the academic area under which they have been found eligible in the first place?


Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that, in order to count as RTI under IDEA, special education programs would need to have been research-supported interventions.
