"As a school psychologist, I am always looking for resources that take the latest research and translate it into everyday practice. Dawson and Guare provide practical, specific, and easy to use guidelines for intervening with students at every tier of the RTI process. From assessment to intervention to progress monitoring, the book is packed with clear routines and tools to use in consulting with teachers, parents, and administrators. It also has a wealth of information about how to intervene with whole classes, small groups, and individual students. My copy of the first edition is well worn, and I can already tell the second edition will be as well, because of its practical and easily reproducible materials."-Rebecca Branstetter, PhD, school psychologist, Oakland Unified School District, California
