Book Description

As Response-to-Intervention (RTI) models continue to attract a great deal of attention, school and district leaders need to understand the structures needed, the personnel required, the challenges faced, and rewards realized from RTI.

Questions and Answers About RTI: A Guide to Success is designed to guide a school or district through the implementation of a new RTI program. Moran and Petruzzelli deliver a concrete understanding of the components of a successful RTI model, the resources needed, and the underlying philosophy.

Educators will find this resource rich with practical examples and straight talk. It also provides an easily understandable "how-to" manual for teachers that are being asked to provide service in an RTI structure.
