By implementing the universal proactive and positive schoolwide approach detailed in the Safe & Civil Schools Series, teachers can spend less time dealing with disruption and resistance and more time teaching. However, some students will need more individualized support.
This resource gives educators information about how to create a continuum of problem-solving and intervention supports for students who don’t respond to universal efforts—or those students who require the higher levels of support, resources, or expertise characteristic of Tier 2 or Tier 3 supports.
This book is designed for school personnel who have responsibility for ensuring that students’ needs for behavioral, social, and emotional support are met, as well as anyone who will be involved in planning or implementing an individual intervention. This may include:
- School psychologists
- School counselors
- Behavioral specialists
- Members of existing problem-solving teams
- Building-based administrators
- Members of your behavior leadership team
- District personnel such as special education directors/coordinators, directors of school psychology, and supervisors of school counselors
This revised edition provides recommendations for efficient schoolwide coordination for delivery of intervention services—the background tasks administrators and school leaders must complete in order to establish a system for individualized intervention.
It also presents an evidence-based model to guide effective and efficient problem-solving for individual students. The framework for building behavior interventions can be used for any stage of a problem, with implementation guidance, sample forms, charts, and data collection tools.
Step-by-step instructions detail how to plan and implement a set of specialized intervention strategies designed to support:
- Students with internalizing challenges
- Students who exhibit escalating, dangerous, or highly disruptive behavior
- Students who may benefit from behavioral contracting, structured reinforcement, or self-monitoring and self-evaluation systems
