Selecting Effective Academic Interventions: An Example Using Brief Experimental Analysis for Oral Reading
Wilber, Amy; Cushman, Thomas P.
Psychology in the Schools, v43 n1 p79-84 Jan 2006
The reauthorization of IDEA (the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004) includes potential use of a response to intervention (RTI) model for the identification of learning disabilities. Using this model, a variety of academic interventions may be implemented with a low-achieving student, with the results monitored to determine student response. If this model is to be successfully used, then it is imperative to select and implement relevant interventions. Brief Experimental Analysis (BEA) is a procedure that can be used to assist in the identification and selection of interventions that are likely to be effective for individual students. In this brief article, we review the use and implementation of BEA and provide a case example related to oral reading. (Contains 2 figures.)
