Finally a resource that empowers classroom teachers, Interventionists, and Response to Intervention (RTI) team leaders to successfully implement RTI at the school-level! In his newest book, Differentiationg Learning Differences from Disabilities, John Hoover presents a roadmap to guide K-12 educators in effectively diagnosing their struggling learners’ differences versus disabilities under the RTI framework. He outlines specific behaviors to help identify whether a student has a learning or behavior disorder, struggles due to cultural diversity or struggles to acquire the English language. Providing thirty reproducible forms for assessment, Hoover leads teachers to tackle their own challenges and differentiate instruction to meet the needs of every student in the classroom based on the Three-Tiered Instructional Framework.
