A Sampling of Outcome Findings from Interventions Relevant to Addressing Barriers to Learning. Technical Assistance Sampler.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
The purpose of this sampler is to highlight the promise of interventions that might be of use to schools as they design major reforms to address barriers to student learning. The document can also be a resource guide for anyone looking for outcome data to guide work in any of the specific areas sampled. A framework for a comprehensive, multifaceted, and integrated approach has been used to organize the sampler of interventions. This framework contains six areas that encompass interventions to: (1) enhance classroom-based efforts to enable learning; (2) provide prescribed student and family assistance; (3) respond to and prevent crises; (4) support transitions; (5) increase home involvement in schooling; and (6) reach out for greater community involvement and support. A section for each of these approaches contains a summary analysis of the state of the art related to the area of interest and a table outlining the sample of interventions and outcome findings. Six appendixes contain information about the programs, interventions, and studies described in each of these areas. Approximately 200 programs are described. (SLD)
