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, edited by T. Chris Riley-Tillman.

"Providing invaluable tools for understanding and implementing Tier 2 interventions, this book is a unique contribution to the literature. I recommend it to educators implementing multi-tiered prevention systems in their schools. In addition, I plan to use it as a text in graduate-level courses dealing with school consultation and systems change."--Cynthia M. Anderson, PhD, Professor and Head, Department of Special Education and Clinical Sciences, University of Oregon
"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, PhD, Professor and Distinguished University Scholar, College of Education and Human Development, University of Louisville
"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, EdS, progress monitoring data coach, Special School District, St. Louis County, Missouri
"One of the biggest challenges for educators is what effective interventions for students who do not respond to schoolwide initiatives should look like. This book helps to close the research-to-practice gap by giving specific, effective steps schools can take to support learning for the struggling and at-risk students in Tier 2. The practices presented here can help to improve our teaching, our partnerships, and, ultimately, our students' futures."--Becky Schubkegel, MEd, special educator, Independence, Missouri
