Reviews and Testimonials

This is an edited collection of papers discussing the Response to Intervention (RTI) model for teaching students with certain types of learning disabilities. RTI has had success in elementary schools, and the authors discuss its more difficult delivery in middle and high schools. The early chapters give general background information about RTI, its components, and implementation. The middle chapters describe content-specific interventions in reading, writing, math, electives, and for English Language Learners. The latter chapters contain case studies and address various issues, in particular, how to assess the effectiveness of an RTI program.
