RtI Modeule

Schools are committed to helping all children succeed. One of the ways schools help children who are struggling to learn and need additional support to be successful is using Response to Instruction (RtI).

Parents and caregivers working together with the school, with your child's educators is important. Being proactive, being involved with your child's education is important to prevent issues from arising. Please take this 25 minute module to learn more about RtI and what to do if you have questions.


Welcome to the Parent Information Center of NH

The Parent Information Center (PIC), a New Hampshire statewide family organization, strives to achieve positive outcomes for children and youth, with a focus on those with disabilities and special healthcare needs. This is achieved through its partnerships with families, educators, youth, professionals and organizations.

PIC is committed to the belief that:

  • PIC LogoFamilies make the difference.
  • When families, professionals and other partners are well-informed and have a shared commitment to work together, everyone benefits.
  • As youth move toward adulthood, they have increasing ownership of their future.
  • Every child can succeed and contribute as valued members of society.

The Parent Information Center (PIC) and its various grant programs address a variety of key issues in order to help parents support their children’s success in school and in life. These issues are described in the panels below, which include links to the various programs, and to their services and resources.
