Overview

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.
