The Preschool–Grade 4 Manual has 35 practical intervention ideas, reproducible worksheets, examples, illustrations, and tips designed for easy implementation. A CD-ROM with all of the reproducible forms is provided along with the manual. Most of the ideas in the second edition of this popular resource are new and the others have been revised and improved.
Educators can incorporate these practical ideas into their campus Response to Intervention framework. Ideas for school-wide, class-wide, group, and individual interventions are provided, along with references indicating their scientific research basis. The complete kit includes everything educators need to provide high-quality, targeted interventions that meet RTI requirements for behavior.
In addition, educators who work with students already identified with emotional/behavioral disorders will find effective, easy-to-use ideas that can be integral to their Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs). The Evaluation Form that is part of the kit has also been significantly improved. It consists of a Rating Scale, an Ideas Matrix, and an Intervention Plan.
The Rating Scale is a criterion-referenced measure for evaluating behaviors that impact student learning. The Ideas Matrix provides a systematic way of linking the results of the Rating Scale to interventions. The Intervention Plan is a record-keeping tool used to document (1) the targeted skills, (2) a review of prior interventions, (3) new ideas selected for implementation, and 4) the evaluation methods that will be used to track student progress. The plan is an excellent resource for campus student intervention teams to design and implement effective strategies for students’ behavioral and social success.
