Is a Three-Tier Reading Intervention Model Associated with Reduced Placement in Special Education?
Wanzek, Jeanne; Vaughn, Sharon
Remedial and Special Education, v32 n2 p167-175 Mar-Apr 2011
Patterns of identification for special education services across three cohorts of students in kindergarten through third grade before and after implementation of a schoolwide, three-tier reading prevention model in one large school district are reported. The first cohort of students represents a historical control group that did not participate in the three-tier prevention model. The second and third cohorts of students represent successive cohorts of students who participated in the three-tier model from kindergarten to third grade. The data indicate a trend in the direction of a decreased percentage of students identified for special education through each cohort of students; however, there were no statistically significant differences in the overall percentages of students identified for special education across cohorts. Practical implications and further research are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
