Description

RTI: A Practitioner's Guide to Implementing Response to Intervention provides detailed and comprehensive guidelines for implementing Response to Intervention (RTI). As a schoolwide approach, RTI emphasizes scientifically based instruction, progress monitoring, and early intervention. This text illustrates how practitioners can implement the individual components of RTI in conjunction with other policy initiatives. The authors discuss the three tiers of the RTI method including schoolwide screening and progress, monitoring and examine them in terms of features, implementation tips, changing structures and roles, and challenges to implementation. This guidebook also includes numerous site examples and student case studies, and concludes with a section on frequently asked questions and an overview of future developments in RTI.
