This study sought to examine the effects of Tier 2 intervention in a multitiered model on the performance of first- and second-grade students who were identified as having mathematics difficulties. A regression discontinuity design was utilized. Participants included 126 (Tier 2, n = 26) first graders and 140 (Tier 2, n = 25) second graders. Tier 2 students received 15- min intervention booster lessons for 18 weeks in early mathematics skills and concepts. Results showed a significant intervention effect for second-grade Tier 2 students on the "Texas Early Mathematics Inventories-Progress Monitoring" (TEMI-PM) total standard score. The effect was not significant for first-grade Tier 2 students. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
