Product Description


"One of the most comprehensive and current RTI resources available. What is special about this book is that it goes far beyond where other resources typically leave off. The authors do an excellent job of balancing research, theory, and illustrations and formats that will help implementers apply the concepts in their schools. They describe the key components of implementing RTI, including applications for diverse student populations. The book is written in an especially approachable, almost conversational style that will be consumable by a wide variety of professionals. It is a great resource for professionals beginning their RTI journey as well as those who have been implementing the approach for some time."--W. David Tilly III, PhD, Director, Innovation and Accountability, Heartland Area Education Agency, Johnston, Iowa 
"Response to Intervention, Second Edition can be used to help ensure that all students receive scientifically informed instruction that fits their individual learning style and needs, resulting in measurable progress. The authors weave their experiences and observations into helpful vignettes, examples, and many reproducible forms that will allow school personnel to begin using RTI immediately. Because the book provides the means to evaluate individually implemented interventions, it can also be a valuable tool for service providers in private practice, such as child psychologists."--Brian Reichow, PhD, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine
"Given the widespread implementation of RTI around the country, it is critical for school psychologists, administrators, and other educational practitioners to have a firm grasp of its essential components. Why should we implement RTI? What should we do? How should we do it? Brown-Chidsey and Steege provide step-by-step guidance for building an RTI service delivery model, as well as practical examples and resources. This accessible book is a 'must' for professional development with school psychologists and school- and district-based leadership teams. The inclusion of systems-level guidance in the second edition addresses an essential aspect of implementation."--Jennifer Knutson, PhD, school psychologist and RTI consultant, Anchorage School District, Alaska

"This informative text provides a practical, how-to approach designed to help begin and support the shift to an RTI approach....Teachers, psychologists, literary coaches, and other professionals will find a wealth of useful and practical information including sample schedules for initial staff training, help with goal setting and benchmarks for progress monitoring, and summaries of curricula."--Perspectives on Language and Literacy (on previous edition)

Great Educational Textbook June 18 2011
By Itsme - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am using this textbook for a Master's of Special Education course. This textbook goes into great detail about using interventions before recommending a child for special education. It also goes into great detail about using progress monitoring tools to measure a children's progress or regression. If you are a teacher or thinking about becoming a teacher, I would highly recommend this textbook. This is something every teacher should know.

Response to Intervention Nov. 12 2011
By Kristan Overfield - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This text explains everything you need to know about Response to Intervention. It is easy to read and details the intervention steps that should be taken before recommending a child for special education services. If your district or school does not have something like this in place, this book will help you create progress monitoring tools to use in your classroom.

Easy Read Oct. 28 2013

Book is an easy read. Great for schools that want to implement RTI. Great for school psychology majors in grad school.
Great resource, but not what I was looking for Oct. 24 2013
By AJ - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for those who want to learn more about the RTI process. Unfortunately, I was looking for a book that had specific RTI strategies or interventions, which this does not. It does include a list of websites that have specific, research-based interventions, but again, it was just not what I was looking for.
