Editorial Reviews

Doug Fuchs
"This is a richly informative book on a most important and timely topic to hundreds of thousands of practitioners, parents, and policy makers. "
Joseph Jenkins
"Mellard and Johnson not only help us understand what RTI is and why we need it, they go the next step andtell us how to make it happen. "
Karen L. Tichy
"There is an absolute need for a practitioner-focused book on Response to Intervention. RTI is an increasingly frequent feature of major policy initiatives as well as a major aspect of the growing body of best practices in instruction, assessment, and addressing students’ special needs. "
Principal Magazine
"A must-have for every principal, central office administrator, and classroom instructional leader. The book will benefit both the building principal and the central office administrator by giving them a much better understanding of what RTI is, how it will operate within the building, and how the program will effect the district’s overall student achievement. Classroom teachers, especially those who are involved in the operation/implementation of an RTI program in their building, will gain an in-depth understanding of the RTI process and will see firsthand how to implement the program with the awareness of potential stumbling blocks such as progress monitoring of student data.
