From the Publisher
"I have recommended Rathvon's book so many times, I stopped counting. This is a 'must-have' resource for school psychologists, teachers, and administrators for building your RTI toolkit. Rathvon helps us to navigate through successful evidence-based interventions in a very user-friendly format. This book is invaluable in offering research-supported, successful interventions while saving time (due to the easy-to-understand academic and behavioral interventions and step-by-step directions for implementation) and money (cost effective with 70 interventions provided). This is a highly valuable and very rare find as a school resource."Paula Freer, PhD, past president, Student Support Team Association for Georgia Educators
"This second edition is an essential book for professionals working with school-age children or consultants assisting classroom teachers. The empirical citations provided for each intervention will assist school personnel in the identification of RTI-compatible interventions. In addition, I highly recommend this text as a learning tool for graduate students in school psychology, special education, teacher education, and educational administration programs."Merilee McCurdy, PhD, School Psychology Program, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
"Covering a broad range of important topics, including classroom management, classwide peer tutoring, vocabulary instruction, and comprehension, Rathvon uses a 'solid science' perspective to identify strategies that make a difference. This text is an invaluable resource for graduate students who are learning that, indeed, some interventions work much better than others to produce meaningful student outcomes. In addition, readers with little background in scientifically based academic and behavior interventions will find this book to be an excellent starting point."Mark R. Shinn, PhD, Educational Psychology Program, National-Louis University

"Thorough, descriptive and well-written text. I have already recommended this book to the clinicians on our school consultation team and to the Education students I teach, and it is already well used."
The School Administrator
"The book uses a lesson-plan-like format to describe the intervention and implementation process. The inclusion of a detailed table of contents, cross references, key concepts, and an appendix at the end of each section helps the reader locate appropriate strategies. The amount of information presented by Rathvon, as assistant clinical professor of psychology at George Washington University, is extensive but extremely user-friendly....Using the interventions on an as-needed basis makes this a valuable tool for administrative libraries."
