From the PublisherFrom the reviews:
"Response to intervention (RTI) offers the best opportunity of the past three decades to ensure that every child – no matter how gifted or challenged – will be equally valued in an education system in which the progress of every child is monitored and individualized interventions with appropriate levels of intensity are provided to students as needed. Far too much attention has been focused on the different approaches to RTI by education leaders, researchers, and implementers. It’s time to look to what is common in our work and unite together so this opportunity is not wasted. The most effective science will prove itself over time. But while the field is waiting for the evidence base to grow, RTI must advance in a responsible manner. This handbook provides essential reading for all stakeholders seeking to increase their knowledge base about RTI. It is an excellent and timely resource. I challenge everyone to read it, and then follow-up with actions to ensure that every child benefits from RTI."

"Handbook of Response to Intervention: The Science and Practice of Assessment and Intervention … provides a solid foundation for K-12 instructors to base their educational interventions on with students. Divided into four sections, this book provides ample coverage of the foundations of response to intervention (RTI) strategies, assessment and measurement, research-based prevention and intervention, and lessons learned. … Response to Intervention is a highly technical, supremely sourced blueprint for an ongoing paradigm shift in education."
