new challenges for educators
New Challenges for Educators
  • Diversity of learners
  • Limited availability of support staff
  • Increased accountability
  • Mountains of paperwork
  • Redundant entry of data by hand

The Old Paradigm

Forms are documents that are completed to fulfill bureaucratic requirements. One set of forms is provided to document and report all student problems. Paper forms are filed in a cabinet.


The New Paradigm

Forms are tools designed to solve problems. Tools are provided in multiple formats. Data are shared electronically. Teachers select and use tools that support their teaching style and address the diverse needs of students.

to support the new paradigm new flexible tools are needed that
To Support the New Paradigm, New Flexible Tools Are Needed That:
  • Help teachers collect student data
  • Consider individual differences
  • Provide multiple ways to document
  • Offer alternate intervention formats
  • Can be shared electronically
  • Ensure all relevant data are considered
  • Help monitor intervention plans
  • Provide a tracking system
  • Support a problem solving process

best practices for interventions
Best Practices for Interventions
  • Charles Kettering said that a problem well-defined is a problem half-solved. Always state problems in specific, behavioral terms.
  • Establish a baseline before beginning an intervention. Baselines can be developed through informal skill tests, behavior tallies, etc.
  • When encountering multiple problems, first pick the problem that has the greatest educational impact.
  • Interventions should always consider a desired outcome and the barrier that is preventing the student from attaining the outcome.
  • Always check for health and medical factors, such vision, hearing, nutrition, sleeping habits or a diagnosed medical condition.
best practices for interventions14
Best Practices for Interventions
  • Check office records and contact previous teachers.
  • Student and/or parent interviews should be considered when student motives are unclear.
  • Interventions should consider student learning style and strengths.
  • Student, parent, and teacher commitment should be documented with signatures.
  • Intervention plans should specify the mode and frequency of communication between home and school.
best practices for interventions15
Best Practices for Interventions
  • At intervention meetings, schedule an update and assign responsibilities.
  • Consult an administrator immediately when a student problem poses a danger to self or others.
  • Remember that interventions provide valuable information even when they don’t lead to successful student outcomes.
  • An electronic database system offers the most efficient way to collect data, develop plans and archive interventions.

our vision
Our Vision

“We are continually faced with a series of great opportunities --brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.”

John W. Gardner

When parents, students and instructional support teams work together, intervention plans can become great opportunities to significantly improve, if not completely resolve, even the most difficult learning or behavior problems.
