“If you want to improve the impact of your academic and behavioral strategies for all your students, then follow McIntosh and Goodman's expert guidance on using the MTSS framework and logic. This book does a superb job of addressing the 'why,' 'what,' 'how,' 'when,' and 'where' of aligning and integrating leadership teaming, data-based decision making, explicit academic and behavior instruction, universal screening, continuous progress monitoring, and evaluation and coaching. And, it provides the empirical support, self-assessments, and applied examples for making MTSS contextually relevant and doable for you and your students.”

—George Sugai, PhD, Professor and Carole J. Neag Endowed Chair, Neag School of Education, University of Connecticut

“A 'must read' for those interested in learning how to construct, implement, evaluate, and sustain integrated three-tiered models of prevention. McIntosh and Goodman have produced an easy-to-access guide for developing data-driven systems to meet students’ academic and behavioral needs, including very practical information on systematic screening efforts.”

—Kathleen Lynne Lane, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Special Education, University of Kansas

“The publication of this volume has been eagerly awaited. McIntosh and Goodman provide the most comprehensive lens to date for integrating academic and behavior systems of support. They clearly articulate the critical features and attributes that support implementation and sustainability of an MTSS at both the district and building levels. The authors have succeeded in writing a very reader-friendly book, complete with practical examples and tools for moving teams at all stages of implementation forward. This is an essential practitioner’s handbook and should be required reading for all preservice educators.”

—Dawn Miller, PhD, SWIFT Center (Schoolwide Integrated Framework for Transformation), University of Kansas

“At a time when educational systems are under constant financial strain, the ability to integrate systems in school districts is crucial. By using an MTSS, K–12 educators can become more efficient and effective. This book details how to work toward integrating current processes and support systems to facilitate student learning. I encourage school personnel who want to understand an integrated approach to educational systems to read this book.”

—Gustavo Balderas, DEd, Superintendent of Schools, Eugene School District, Oregon

“Well written, understandable, informative, and relevant. McIntosh and Goodman have created a great resource that is useful for those just embarking on an MTSS journey as well as those who have been working toward an integrated MTSS for some time. Not only does this book provide guidance about how and why integration of academic RTI and PBIS is important, but it also gives us tools to help us all in our work.”

—Justyn Poulos,Assistant Director, Wisconsin RTI Center
