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.
