This book addresses a crucial aspect of sustaining a response-to-intervention (RTI) framework in a school: selecting interventions with the greatest likelihood of success and implementing them with integrity. Leading RTI experts explain how to match interventions to students' proficiency levels, drawing on cutting-edge research about the stages of learning. Effective academic and behavioral interventions for all three tiers of RTI are described in step-by-step detail and illustrated with vivid case examples. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book features more than 40 reproducible planning tools and other helpful forms. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series, edited by T. Chris Riley-Tillman.

"The promise of RTI is that every child receives instruction matched to his or her needs. Teachers understand the rationale and urgency for implementation, yet the nuts and bolts of implementation--particularly for classroom teachers--are more challenging. This book not only describes the 'how-tos,' but also identifies evidence-based interventions for both academics and behavior that make problem solving more practical for teachers. Every building leadership team and professional learning community should own this book."--Amber Roderick-Landward, MEd, Director of Evidence-Based Learning, Canyons School District, Utah
"The authors provide an excellent framework for selecting academic and behavioral interventions. The use of the 'instructional hierarchy' will help educators make theory-based decisions that will enhance practice. This is a valuable tool for school-based practitioners, university educators, and students. Providing many hands-on examples, the book would serve well as a text in practicum classes focused on academic or behavioral interventions."--Mike Vanderwood, PhD, Graduate School of Education, University of California, Riverside
"A valuable resource for educators looking to improve academic and behavioral interventions in the context of RTI. Readers will gain an understanding of how to select, implement, and evaluate interventions at Tiers 1, 2, and 3 of the RTI model, while using data to guide decision making at every step. The authors provide detailed information about a range of academic and behavioral interventions for individual students, groups, classrooms, or entire schools. As a trainer of school psychologists, I can see this book being used as a text in graduate courses addressing school consultation, assessment, and intervention."--Angela J. Whalen, PhD, Department of Special Education and Clinical Sciences, University of Oregon
