In this article the author expresses her views regarding the response to intervention program (RTI) and the role of special education teachers in such a system. She states that prior to RTI's launch in 2006, she already worked a similar system in her school as early as 2002, meeting with different staff members to find ways of helping students who have fallen behind others. She states that RTI helps by tweaking what she did further with a more systematic approach in doing so. She believes, however, that some adaptation is needed by teachers to effect it.
