At Chelsea Primary School, we have adopted the Response to Intervention (RTI) model, a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning delays, including impairment in reading (dyslexia).
Tier 1: Core Instruction
80-85% of students
All students receive a strong evidence-based curriculum and methods.
Tier 2: Targeted Interventions
15-20% of students
Evidence-based targeted supplemental skill-building interventions for some students who require support to make progress.
Tier 3: Intensive Intervention
1-5% of students
Evidence-based intensive targeted interventions for students whose needs are not being met by tier 1 or 2.
More information on learning difficulties and the RTI model is available on the DET website:
