The Handbook of Response to Intervention in Early Childhood

Edited by Virginia Buysse, Ph.D. & Ellen Peisner-Feinberg, Ph.D.

Forward by Russel Gersten, Ph.D.

This groundbreaking handbook contains wide-ranging perspectives by prominent scholars and research-based information on how to conceptualize RTI in early childhood. Experts in the field discuss all components of an integrated RTI system, such as the fundamentals of RTI, assessment in the context of RTI, tiered models of instruction and intervention for young children, curriculum and intentional teaching practices, program-level supports, and the future potential of RTI. This volume is designed to bridge the gap between the emerging evidence of the effectiveness of using RTI with young children and practical strategies of customizing instruction to the diverse learning needs of young children.
