Response to Intervention for Social Behavior: Challenges and Opportunities
Hawken, Leanne S.; Vincent, Claudia G.; Schumann, Joan
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, v16 n4 p213-225 2008
The goal of the three-tiered response-to-intervention (RtI) model is to catch students who are at risk early and to provide an appropriate level of intervention. Although RtI has been recommended for academic and social behavior, to date there has been little discussion about the differences associated with implementing RtI across these domains. The purpose of this article is to compare similarities and differences in RtI for academic and social behavior. In addition, some of the primary challenges associated with the implementation of RtI for social behavior are discussed. Examples of how RtI has been implemented with social behavior are provided along with recommendations for future research. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
