Identify students' learning needs and make appropriate decisions regarding instruction and intervention! Response to Intervention (RTI) is a three-tiered framework that helps all students by providing targeted interventions at increasing levels of intensity. This detailed guide to tier 3 of the RTI model provides school psychologists and RTI teams with a case study approach to conducting intensive, comprehensive student evaluations. With step-by-step guidelines for primary and secondary education, this resource demonstrates how to develop a specific case study for students who are struggling in the general classroom. Focusing exclusively on the third tier, the book: provides guidance on problem identification and analysis, progress monitoring, selection of research-based interventions, and evaluation of case study outcomes; addresses both academic and behavioural challenges, including mental health issues; shows how school psychologists can collaborate with other members of the RTI team; provides tools for assessment and for tracking progress Tier 3 of the RTI Model; and, guides school psychologists through the involved, in-depth process of building a case study that identifies student needs and helps educators determine the best way to educate students with learning challenges.
