Evidence-based interventions only benefit learners when they are implemented fully. Yet many educators struggle with successful implementation. This unique book gives practitioners a research-based framework for working with PreK-12 educators to support the effective delivery of academic, behavioural, and social-emotional interventions. Step-by-step procedures are presented for assessing existing implementation efforts and using a menu of support strategies to promote intervention fidelity.

In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book includes 24 reproducible worksheets, strategy guides, and fidelity assessment tools. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

"Should be a mandatory resource for any professional who provides, supports, or evaluates school-based interventions. Uniquely designed for trainees and practitioners of all levels, this book serves as a step-by-step guide for engaging in best practices associated with measuring, supporting, and evaluating treatment integrity. The valuable downloadable tools can be used repeatedly prior to, during, and following intervention implementation. I will absolutely use this book in my master's-level course on academic interventions."
- Matthew DuBois, PhD, NCSP, Department of Psychological Services, Public Schools of Brookline, Massachusetts

"Amid the understandable clamor for evidence-based interventions, the elephant in the room is the conspicuous lack of equal emphasis on supporting effective implementation. This book provides practical concepts and worksheets practitioners can use to put in place any of six strategies to increase fidelity. This book is the missing piece to successful implementation. It serves as an essential companion to any text or reference on academic and behavioral interventions. Graduate students will be better prepared if exposed to its content. Practitioners should consider this a primary reference for active practice in schools."
- W. Alan Coulter, PhD, Director, TIERS Group (Teams Intervening Early to Reach all Students), Human Development Center, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans

"This book offers a practical guide to fostering successful implementation of interventions, with the goal of shifting student performance. It is an important contribution for professionals dedicated to putting evidence-based practices in place with integrity. Honoring the complexity of implementation, the book shows how to use feasible, efficient strategies during consultation and coaching to ensure—and sustain—intervention fidelity."
- Kathleen Lynne Lane, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Special Education, University of Kansas

"Sanetti and Collier-Meek offer an up-to-date, detailed description of how to provide effective consultation or coaching to implementers, with excellent visuals and helpful worksheets. The book is infused with the latest research on adult behavior change to assist in enhancing implementation of effective practices and troubleshooting common problems."
