Overview

As response to intervention (RTI) is adopted by increasing numbers of schools and districts, knowledge about "what works" continues to grow. This much-needed book analyzes the key components of RTI service delivery and identifies the characteristics of successful implementation. Critically reviewing the available research, leading authorities describe best practices in multi-tier intervention, assessment, and data-based decision making. Clear-cut recommendations are provided for implementing evidence-based interventions to support students' needs in reading, writing, math, and behavior. A state-of-the-art resource for K–12 practitioners and administrators, the book also will fill a unique niche in graduate-level courses.

Editorial Reviews

Choice Reviews
This is one of the best books on the subject of Response to Intervention (RTI) published to date. [The Editors] have assembled chapters that are extremely well researched, and the invited contributors have synthesized enormous amounts of current research on the efficacy of RTI that will translate directly into practice....School psychological examiners and special education administrators will find the book an excellent resource as they attempt to incorporate RTI into their assessment systems.—Choice Reviews
From the Publisher
"This book provides a research-based perspective that makes it unlike many other resources on RTI. Glover and Vaughn have brought together evidence-based chapters on what we know about effective interventions in reading and other areas. An important addition to the professional library of anyone serious about developing effective RTI initiatives."—Richard L. Allington, PhD, Department of Theory and Practice in Teacher Education, University of Tennessee
 

"This is a rewarding resource for researchers and practitioners who need to know about effective intervention practices within RTI service delivery models. In concise, clear, and compelling writing, the contributors summarize characteristics of effective interventions for reading, writing, mathematics, and behavior. The chapters on reading are particularly strong, providing the information practitioners need to translate best-practices research data into useable classroom interventions."—Amanda VanDerHeyden, PhD, Education Research and Consulting, Inc., Fairhope, Alabama
 

"Glover and Vaughn have edited a volume that hits a sweet spot in the RTI literature. To date, most works on RTI either have addressed the evidence base or have focused on practice. But both are needed for complete understanding and successful field-based RTI implementation. This work provides a launching pad into the world of evidence-based RTI implementation in schools."—W. David Tilly III, PhD, Director, Innovation and Accountability, Heartland Area Education Agency, Johnston, Iowa
 

"This book is an integrative blend of research and practice on RTI. It nicely addresses the complex issues related to implementing different layers of RTI, reviewing actual school- and statewide approaches. The research base for evidence-based interventions in reading, writing, and math is covered. The book will be a valuable addition for practitioners working to implement RTI models, as well as for researchers and others interested in these innovative approaches to service delivery in schools."—Jack M. Fletcher, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Houston
