A Pre-Referral System That Defines, Identifies, and Allows for Documenting Interventions for At-Risk Students.
Hosn, Rima Aboul
This paper describes a practicum designed to create a system that would help both counselors and teachers in the process of defining and identifying at-risk students and documenting interventions used with them before referring them for special education assessment. An inservice explaining the process was designed and presented to teachers. Teachers were given time to discuss their at-risk students and deal with the issues involved in the process. Two outcomes were projected for the project: (1) teachers would be able to define at-risk students and state at least 12 characteristics about their behavior; and (2) teachers would document interventions, strategies, and techniques they have used with these students. The results of this process were positive. Analysis of data indicated that teachers were successful in identifying at-risk students following the guidelines and were able to document interventions involving parents and grade level teachers.
