Stephen Byrd, Ph.D. 


My research interests are in the areas of response to intervention, international special education,  and family perceptions of disability, special education, and information. I am also interested in the area of traumatic brain injury.

Response to Intervention (RTI)

Response to intervention (RTI) is an identification method for students with learning disabilities, but also a method for school improvement for students at-risk. The National Center on Response to Intervention provides a wealth of resources.

You might also want to check the new RTI Action Network for the latest information on the topic.

At present, I am working on a research project on RTI with the Alamance-Burlington School System (ABSS). I am investigating parents' perspectives of RTI through a case study methodology.

International Special Education

I am also interested in international special education, particularly in India.
