The WI Department of Public Instruction (DPI) endorses and promotes evidence-based and developmentally appropriate curriculum and assessment practices as the foundation for Response to Intervention (RtI) frameworks in early childhood settings. The DPI advises programs to deliver content-rich curriculum with challenging but achievable goals in ways that honor and respect the unique learning needs of young children. Using a play-based curriculum to support a child's learning is important for developing self-regulation, as well as promoting language, cognition, and social competence.
