RTI A Practitioner's Guide to Implementing Response to Intervention

by Daryl F. Mellard

RTI A Practitioner's Guide to Implementing Response to Intervention Synopsis

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.

RTI A Practitioner's Guide to Implementing Response to Intervention Press Reviews

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. -- Principal Magazine, September/October 2008 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. -- Karen L. Tichy, Associate Superintendent for Instruction Mellard and Johnson not only help us understand what RTI is and why we need it, they go the next step and tell us how to make it happen. -- Joseph Jenkins, Professor of Special Education This is a richly informative book on a most important and timely topic to hundreds of thousands of practitioners, parents, and policy makers. -- Doug Fuchs, Nicholas Hobbs Chair in Special Education and Human Development
