Intervention by Design™ is an intensive intervention program for students in Grades K–5 who are reading two or more grade levels below their on-level peers. The perfect resource to support the problem-solving model of RtI, Intervention by Design provides easy links to any core curriculum classroom, flexible resources to meet the needs of individual students, and intuitive technology to inform your instruction.
Generally implemented as a Tier 3 solution—and sometimes as Tier 2—Intervention by Design delivers intervention that focuses on the comprehension strategies critical to grade‐level success, bridges foundational gaps in phonemic awareness and phonics, and builds the development of fluency and vocabulary skills. Dr. Michael Opitz, author of Intervention by Design, is also on the Literacy by Design® authorship team, and the two programs meld seamlessly together for reading students that need intensive intervention in addition to core instruction.
With approximately one-third of elementary students reading at levels considered below basic and the challenging to help these students meet the Common Core State Standards, you can rely on Intervention by Design to provide systematic and explicit instruction to meet the individual needs of struggling readers. Intervention by Design is the simple solution to a complex problem.
