“Required reading for anyone interested in research-based approaches to informing decisions within a multi-tiered framework. The key elements of reading instruction include excellent suggestions for enhancing vocabulary knowledge, while considerable attention is given to meeting the instructional needs of English learners. What makes this book unique and necessary—even for experts in response to intervention—is the strong emphasis on measurement at the individual child, building, and program levels, which allows readers to systematically evaluate their effectiveness in differentiating instruction for all learners.”

—Sharon Vaughn, PhD, Executive Director, Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk, and Manuel J. Justiz Endowed Chair in Education, The University of Texas at Austin

“I have taught courses on literacy interventions for years and always struggle to find the perfect text, but this one fits the bill. With content on response to intervention; specific interventions in key areas, including vocabulary; and assessment techniques, the book is accessible and usable. Case studies demonstrate how the strategies are applied. Perhaps the greatest niche that this volume fills is that of providing literacy strategies for struggling readers that are both easy to implement and evidence based.”

—Erica S. Lembke, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Missouri–Columbia

“The impressive team of authors has provided a highly valuable update to their manual on reading interventions in schools. At a time when there is a strong emphasis on evidence-based, explicit reading instruction and response to instruction, this second edition offers a fresh approach to what educators can do when a child does not respond. The authors’ problem-solving model is applied to classroom instruction, with a focus on contemporary issues schools encounter, such as student diversity. All educational professionals, including members of interdisciplinary teams who consult with teachers, will find this book a welcome addition to their bookshelves.”

—Virginia W. Berninger, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Washington

“A fantastic, ‘must-have’ resource. The second edition includes highly valuable chapters on vocabulary instruction, multi-tiered interventions, and diverse learners. The methods for directly assessing reading problems and implementing and evaluating reading interventions are the best I have seen! It is clearly evident that the approaches in this book are directly responsive to the needs of children and youth with reading problems. Every consultant and educator interested in helping children and youth become proficient readers should own this incredibly useful book.”

—Laurice M. Joseph, PhD, Department of School Psychology, The Ohio State University
