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.
