Education professionals have traditionally relied on a wait-to-fail formula to identify and assist students experiencing academic difficulties. With the reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) however, a unique early-identification tool - known as Response To Intervention (RTI) - now offers professionals the option of implementing a collaborative, problem-solving tool designed to ensure that all students achieve academic success.

The Handbook of Response to Intervention offers special educators detailed descriptions of RTI methods and the effective role they can play in special education. In a single, comprehensive volume, more than 90 expert scholars and practitioners join together to provide a highly usable guide to the essentials of RTI assessment and identification as well as research-based interventions for improving students' reading, writing, oral, and math skills. Each chapter explores crucial issues, defines key concepts, and answers real-world questions regarding implementation.

Topics covered include:

  • Psychometric measurement within RTI
  • RTI and social behavior skills
  • The role of consultation in RTI
  • Monitoring response to supplemental services
  • Using technology to facilitate RTI
  • RTI and transition planning
  • Lessons learned from RTI programs around the country

The Handbook of Response to Intervention is a must-have volume for all education practitioners, researchers, and graduate students as well as anyone involved in curriculum reform or resource allocation.
