This authoritative book looks at the consultation process as a collaborative, problem-solving endeavor designed to help practitioners assist others in their work with students who have, or are at risk for, behavioral or learning problems. With a focus on having consultants bridge the gap between research and practice in schools, and on striving to initiate evidence-based practices whenever possible, the authors stress providing interventions that are proportional to the student's needs. They look at how, through data-based systems-change, schools are redistributing their resources along MultiTiered Systems of Support (MTSS) so those in greatest need receive the most intensive help. The premise is that MTSS, which includes Response to Intervention (RtI) and School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) requires collaborative consultation to be successful. Throughout the book, numerous activities and video vignettes promote consultation skills. Readers not only read about conducting a problem-solving interview or managing a student in a crisis, they also observe and role-play the consultation skills involved in seeking a successful resolution.
