Mr. Dwayne D. Williams presented an enlightening aspect of Response-to-Intervention that is greatly absent from the intervention process. Mr. Williams highlighted the cultural needs of students that must be addressed when designing and implementing academic support for students of color. As a Director of Special Education in a culturally diverse urban school setting, it is necessary to explore and actively implement research-based culturally relevant instructional strategies that support the needs of students. Mr. Williams’ presentation surrounding culturally relevant RtI and problem solving has definitely raised awareness surrounding the need to create culturally relevant models. Our special education team has recommended that Mr. Williams return to our district to train our general education teachers on culturally relevant models, and I highly recommend Mr. Williams as a presenter for school districts seeking to increase academic achievement among culturally diverse students.
