As response to intervention (RTI) grows into its adolescence, questions about efficacy and challenges with implementation have emerged. On June 30, 2016, the Center on RTI hosted a webinar, during which panelists addressed findings from the recent Institute of Education Sciences' evaluation of RTI, as well as lessons learned from state and local evaluations of implementation. Experts discussed how use of increasingly available high-quality resources, combined with intensive, comprehensive implementation, provide reasons for optimism that RTI can indeed progress from a tumultuous adolescence to successful adulthood.
