1: Research projects applied to educational contexts
Targeted interventions based on Response to Intervention (RTI) for 1st and 2nd grade of elementary school students from vulnerable contexts. Response to Intervention (RTI) is a multi-tier approach to the early identification and support of students with learning and behavior needs. The objective of this research is to analyze the causal effect of the application of an intervention program based on the RTI model to students of 1st and 2nd grade of primary school who are at risk in written language. This intervention tool seeks to avoid school lag in the first years of schooling, evaluating the students who manage to reach the grade level in which they are after a focused intervention.
