Simonsen, Brandi; Shaw, Stan F.; Faggella-Luby, Michael; Sugai, George; Coyne, Michael D.; Rhein, Barbara; Madaus, Joseph W.; Alfano, Michael
Remedial and Special Education, v31 n1 p17-23 2010
General and special education are confronting tremendous change resulting from legal mandates related to closing the achievement gap under No Child Left Behind and a focus on early intervention and prevention in the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, 2004. As a result, schoolwide intervention approaches are under rapid development, evaluation, and implementation across the country. Based on these approaches, the authors present a conceptual model for redefining special educators as interventionists who focus on the adoption and use of evidence-based, schoolwide academic and behavioral interventions. Examples of the roles and responsibilities for interventionists within the schoolwide model are provided. (Contains 1 note and 1 figure.)
