The model presented in Pyramid Response to Intervention (PRTI) shows how Response to Intervention is most effective when implemented on the foundation of a professional learning community (PLC). It gives educators the information, tools, and processes they need to do that work, including over 2 dozen reproducibles. It uses engaging fictional narratives and examples from real schools that have benefited from PRTI. This book is readable, impassioned, and grounded in the experience of practitioners. Pyramid Response to Intervention makes RTI accessible and understandable. It includes a glossary and over 2 dozen reproducibles to guide schools through the process of creating a pyramid response to intervention. Detailed examples of each tier of response to intervention make it clear to readers what kinds of programs and policies are best for each level and show what RTI looks like in real schools. The authors are experienced consultants on this topic and have implemented RTI successfully in their own schools. The book also takes an in-depth look at the following:

•Basic facts about RTI as well as specific RTI models

•How the PLC pyramid of interventions compares to the RTI model, and how RTI is most successful when built on the foundation of a professional learning community

•The three tiers of RTI: the core program, the supplemental level, and the intensive level

•The effects and role of behavioral interventions

•Possible legal issues and compliance with statutory requirements

•Issues of moral responsibility in helping all children achieve
