"Two themes driving special education and early intervention today are adoption of practices that are evidence-based and use of multi-tiered systems of support such as RtI. Virginia Buysse and Ellen Peisner-Feinberg have recruited a set of chapters that integrate these themes while maintaining a clear focus on practical strategies."--Robert Horner, Professor, Special Education, University of Oregon
"Should be regarded as a touchstone for educators, researchers, and policymakers who hope to develop effective multi-tier systems of service delivery for young children and their families."--Doug Fuchs, Professor and Nicholas Hobbs Chair in Special Education and Human Development
