Description

This resource provides educators with information about how to create a continuum of support at district, school, and individual levels to meet the behavioral needs of all students.

The book is designed for any school personnel who have a responsibility to ensure that students’ needs for behavioral (social/emotional) support are met. These educators may include:

  • Building-based administrators
  • Counselors and psychologists
  • Problem-solving team members
  • Special education teachers
  • Behavior specialists
  • District personnel such as special education directors/coordinators, directors of school psychology, and supervisors of school counselors

One major purpose of this book is to present a proposed model—a blueprint for how services can be organized. The primary objective of this service-delivery structure should be to meet students’ behavioral needs. Secondarily, the structure should ensure that interventions are designed and implemented in the most time-, personnel-, and cost-effective manner possible—while still meeting students’ needs.

The model outlined in Behavioral Response to Intervention creates a sound structure to:

  • Reduce dropout rates.
  • Address disproportionality of suspension and referrals to special education.
  • Reduce the degree to which school psychologists, behavior analysts, behavior specialists, and school counselors will have long waiting lists of students who need evaluations and services.

The book includes a CD with more than 30 reproducible forms, all enabled for type-in entry on your computer.

Behavioral Response to Intervention is listed on the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP). The online National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices was discontinued in January 2018, but a link to the Safe & Civil Schools NREPP listing can be found here.

Her students report that their school is truly bully free. She is currently the school improvement director for a joint venture among the Oregon Department of Education, Oregon's Education Service Districts, Oregon's K-12 system, and higher education. Under Dr. Garrison's leadership, districts are advancing school improvement from being an event to becoming an integral part of how their schools operate. As a consultant, Dr. Garrison specializes in training school teams to increase student achievement and improve behavior. She has coordinated numerous statewide and school district change initiatives. Dr. Garrison is currently developing training materials that support difficult-to-reach students in grades K-10.
