This user-friendly volume provides evidence-based tools for meeting the needs of the approximately 15% of K to 6 students who would benefit from more support than is universally offered to all students but do not require intensive, individualized intervention. With a unique focus on small-group interventions for both academic and behavioral difficulties, the book addresses externalizing behavior, internalizing behavior, reading, and mathematics. Step-by-step guidelines are presented for screening, selecting interventions, and progress monitoring. Ways to involve families and ensure that practices are culturally responsive are described. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book includes more than 20 reproducible handouts and forms.
This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series.
"Many schools have a good handle on instruction and methods for Tiers 1 and 3, yet intervening in Tier 2 seems to remain a mystery! This guide provides specific, practical examples for Tier 2 academic and behavioral interventions that will be extremely helpful to implementers of RTI." - Amber Del Gaiso, Special School District, St. Louis County, Missouri, USA "This book is like the missing link in resources for RTI and positive behavior support, which typically focus on either the bottom (Tier 1) or top (Tier 3) of the triangle. It is the most comprehensive and clearly written resource on Tier 2 that I have seen. It instantly will become an important reference for the field." - Terrance M. Scott, University of Louisville, Kentucky, USA
