Meeting a key need, this is the first comprehensive guide to implementing a schoolwide response to intervention (RTI) program. The book is geared to helping practitioners understand and respond to No Child Left Behind and to the new special education eligibility guidelines outlined in IDEA 2004. Presented are the theoretical and empirical foundations of the approach and a clear, 10-step model for conducting RTI procedures with students, including those from diverse backgrounds, who are experiencing learning difficulties. Helpful reproducibles include 11 worksheets and more than two dozen overhead transparency masters, in a large-size format with layflat binding to facilitate photocopying.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The authors present a clear foundation, rationale, and framework to implement an RTI model. In an age of standards-based accountability, school personnel must have access to models and methods for data-based decision making. This text effectively communicates how to collect and use data to better understand the relationship between the educational environment and student progress. In this way, the text will support the preparation and training of educators as practitioner-scientists--professionals who know how to use assessment data dynamically to modify the instructional environment and maximize student outcomes."--Theodore J. Christ, PhD, School Psychology Program, University of Minnesota

"Even for those who are excited about the potential of RTI to make a real difference in addressing the needs of diverse learners, there is uncertainty about where to begin. This book fills a critical void in the literature. It describes the 'who,' 'what,' 'when,' 'where,' and 'how' of implementing RTI so concretely and coherently that it will make the transition seem doable for even the most reluctant member of a school team. Both the FAQ section and the transparency masters make this a particularly useful handbook for training and implementation. This is one of those rare books that present a complex and controversial set of ideas not only simply and clearly, but with sufficient sophistication that will be useful to a range of audiences. This book will be a godsend for preservice trainers of school psychologists and special educators and for administrators and consultants charged with improving outcomes for all students through the implementation of RTI procedures."--Judith E. Loughlin, PhD, IDEAL Consulting Services and School Psychology Program, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

"RTI is receiving increased attention as an empirically based model for making special education service decisions. This book provides an excellent contribution to the literature on RTI and will serve as a fundamental source related to this decision-making model. Drs. Brown-Chidsey and Steege offer readers step-by-step guidelines for applying this model to their practice. This book will be enormously helpful to school psychologists and other school-based professionals, as well as university programs in school psychology, special education, and education."--Tanya L. Eckert, PhD, Department of Psychology, Syracuse University
