Response to Intervention (RtI) is at the heart of evidence-based practice in schools. Though written into federal special education legislation, it is a general education process consisting of a three-tiered framework for organizing a comprehensive and differentiated system designed to ensure educational success for all students. The focus in this book is on meeting the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students. School social workers are key stakeholders who need to be skilled in designing, monitoring, and evaluating the effectiveness of school-wide universal supports, targeted group interventions, and intensive individual interventions in objective and measurable terms. Designed as both a training manual and a practical reference, with contributions by seasoned academics and practitioners with extensive experience developing and practicing in RtI systems, this one-of-a-kind guide operationalizes this crucial service delivery framework. It highlights the importance of data-based decision making and offers concrete guidelines for collecting, analyzing, and displaying data. Detailed case examples that illustrate real-world program implementation, practical guidance in selecting empirically supported practices, sample assessment worksheets, and strategies for supporting the adoption and sustainability of RtI systems make this a handy tool for school social workers seeking a more active role in using decision-making processes to improve their school's system of support for all students.
Discover a resource that shows teachers how to implement RTI in the classroom! This practical guide helps educators understand the tiers of the Response to Intervention (RTI) process, as well as how to implement interventions and utilize the results to modify existing instruction for students in the classroom. With vignettes, examples, and reproducible forms based on the problem-solving and standards-based approaches to RTI, this accessible handbook gives teachers the tools to: Document the existence or nonexistence of a learning disability Monitor individual student progress Plan specific follow-up interventions based on a learner's needs Implement strategies to support students' success
Inklusion in der Schule beschäftigt seit der Ratifizierung der UN-Behindertenrechtskonvention eine Vielzahl an Personen: Lehrkräfte, Schulleitungen, Eltern, Bildungspolitiker, Bildungswissenschaftler usw. In diesem Zusammenhang wird international und in jüngster Zeit auch in Deutschland häufig der US-amerikanische Response-to-Intervention-Ansatz (RTI) diskutiert. RTI hat die Prävention von schulischen Schwierigkeiten sowie die Integration von Kindern mit bereits vorliegenden Entwicklungsproblematiken zum Ziel. In verschiedenen Studien hat sich der RTI-Ansatz hierbei als ein effektives Konzept erwiesen, das zu einer allgemeinen Senkung der Quote (sonder-)pädagogischer Förderbedarfe sowie zu gesteigerten Lernerfolgen für alle Kinder führt. Bei dem hier vorgestellten Rügener Inklusionsmodell (RIM) handelt es sich deutschlandweit um das erste an den RTI-Ansatz angelehnte Beschulungskonzept, welches flächendeckend in einer Region umgesetzt wird und auch auf seine Effektivität hin geprüft wurde. Neben der Darstellung des RTI-Ansatzes und des darauf aufbauenden RIM in den Bereichen Mathematik, Deutsch, emotional-soziale Entwicklung und Sprache wird in diesem Band von der vierjährigen wissenschaftlichen Begleitstudie berichtet und differenziert auf die umfassende Befundlage eingegangen. Insgesamt ist festzuhalten, dass der RTI-Ansatz eine sehr praktikable Möglichkeit darstellt, ein wohnortnah zugängliches, angemessenes und anpassungsfähiges Bildungsangebot zu realisieren und damit der Forderung nach schulischer Inklusion nachzukommen.

Successful implementation of response to intervention (RTI) for academic skills problems requires rigorous progress monitoring. This book shows how the proven instructional technology known as precision teaching (PT) can facilitate progress monitoring while building K-12 students' fluency in reading, writing, math, and the content areas. Detailed instructions help general and special education teachers use PT to target specific skills at all three tiers of RTI, and incorporate it into project-based learning. Of crucial importance for RTI implementers, the book provides explicit procedures for measuring and charting learning outcomes during each PT session, and using the data to fine-tune instruction. Reproducible charts and other useful tools can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

This book is a how-to manual for school mental health professionals, educators, and administrators that discusses a series of steps that can be used to proactively manage and prevent many different types of behavioral problems in a positive manner. It incorporates both the high structure and high behavioral expectations that are crucial for school success, but also describes following this structure in such a way that students feel included, important, and respected. Rather than requiring the mental health providers to investigate the research themselves and come up with a behavioral problem solving model, this book includes step-by-step guides on how to implement school-wide and classroom-wide interventions in a response-to-intervention format. For those students who demonstrate more behavior problems, more intensive interventions are included to help alleviate those problems. The first section of the book discusses Tier I interventions and assessments designed to ensure that the school is effectively implementing a high quality, research-based behavioral management system. The next section covers Tier II interventions, those used for students who do not respond adequately to those of Tier I. These interventions are research-based, rigorous, and designed to address a broad range of behavior problems. Finally, the last section discusses Tier III interventions for students in need of highly individualized and intensive interventions to manage behavior problems.
