Summary

"Designed for utility in school settings, this book presents 70 interventions that have been demonstrated to improve academic achievement, the classroom learning environment, and student behavior and social competence. The second edition has been revised and expanded to reflect significant advances in research and practice. It is fully compatible with a response-to-intervention (RTI) framework, and 42 of the interventions are entirely new." "Evidence based and accessible, this book is an indispensable resource for elementary and secondary school psychologists, teachers, and counselors; child clinical psychologists; school social workers; and other practitioners involved in RTI and student support team efforts. Its balance of conceptual, practical, and empirical considerations make it an ideal text for graduate-level courses on school-based intervention."--BOOK JACKET.
