Handbook of Response to Intervention: The Science and Practice of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support, 2nd Edition
Jimerson, Shane R., Ed.; Burns, Matthew K., Ed.; VanDerHeyden, Amanda M., Ed.
The second edition of this essential handbook provides a comprehensive, updated overview of the science that informs best practices for the implementation of response to intervention (RTI) processes within Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) to facilitate the academic success of all students. The volume includes insights from leading scholars and scientist-practitioners 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. New and revised chapters explore crucial issues, define key concepts, identify topics warranting further study, and address real-world questions regarding implementation. Key topics include: (1) Scientific foundations of RTI; (2) Psychometric measurement within RTI; (3) RTI and social behavior skills; (4) The role of consultation in RTI; (5) Monitoring response to supplemental services; (6) Using technology to facilitate RTI; (7) RTI and transition planning; and (8) Lessons learned from RTI programs around the country. The second edition of the "Handbook of Response to Intervention" is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students, and professionals/scientist-practitioners in child and school psychology, special and general education, social work and counseling, and educational policy and politics. The book begins with a foreword and an acknowledgements section. Following are forty-one chapters divided into eight parts.
