What is an Intervention?

Intervention versus accommodations and modifications


Intervention defined

Intervention Defined

  • Academic or behavior interventions are strategies or techniques used to teach a new skill, build fluency in a skill, or encourage the application of existing skills to a new situation.

  • Implemented beyond the core instruction


What does it look like

What does it look like?

  • Supplemental Intervention (Tier 2 - ex. students in yellow)

    • MTSS Model recommends 30 minutes of targeted intervention beyond the core for supplemental intervention

    • Small groups of 3 to 5 students focusing on the same skill

  • Intensive Intervention (Tier 3 - ex. students in red)

    • MTSS Model recommends 60 minutes of intervention beyond the core for intensive intervention (kids in the red)

    • Small groups of 2 to 3 students or one-on-one


Examples of intervention

Examples of Intervention

  • Reading Fluency

  • General Academics, Reading Comprehension, Math, Study & Organization, Writing

  • Math intervention using Khan Academy (next slide)

  • Enrichment assignments for higher students

  • Re-teaching beyond core instruction such as chunking (presenting information again but in smaller increments)

    • Remember re-teaching only counts as an intervention is you are teaching information in a different way than how it was taught the first time.

Accommodations and modifications

Accommodations and Modifications

These are not considered interventions but are commonly mistaken as such


Accommodation or modification

Accommodation or modification?

  • Accommodations are changes in how a student accesses information and demonstrates learning.

    • Do not substantially change the instructional level, content, or performance criteria

    • Changes are made in order to provide a student with equal access to learning and an equal opportunity to show what he or she knows and can do.

  • Modifications are changes in what a student is expected to learn.

    • The changes are made to provide a student with opportunities to participate meaningfully and productively along with other students in classroom and school learning experiences


What is an intervention

Accommodations

Modifications

Modified work load or length of assignments/tests

Projects instead of written reports

Reworded questions in simpler language

Alternative tests/assignments at their level such as lower level spelling test

Simplifying or limiting the amount of information a student is expected to learn

  • Preferential seating

  • Graphic Organizers

  • Use of manipulatives

  • Have student restate what was said

  • Use of a study carrel

  • Quiet corner/setting to calm down or complete assignments

  • Study Guides

  • Visual Schedule

  • Oral testing
