School Social Work Consultation Models and Response to Intervention: A Perfect Match
Sabatino, Christine Anlauf
Children & Schools, v31 n4 p197-206 Oct 2009
The 2004 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act introduced the concept of Response to Intervention (RTI). In part, this is an educational prevention approach to maximize student academic achievement and minimize behaviors that interfere with school success. It consists of assessment and intervention practices on multiple levels, including schoolwide, classwide, and individual services. School social work consultation services are in compliance with this federal perspective; however, they are not typically thought about or described in RTI language. This article presents six different school social work consultation models often used in daily school social work practice and maps out their consistency with the RTI paradigm.
