Megan Rojo; Christian T. Doabler; Ben Clarke – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
The number line has been proposed as a central construct used by students to solve a range of mathematics problems. Given the capacity of number lines to represent all real numbers and to be used in a variety of contexts, there have been calls to increase the use of number lines in mathematics instruction. However, due to the recency of these…

This article illustrates how teachers can use number lines to support students with or at risk for learning disabilities (LD) in mathematics. Number lines can be strategically used to help students understand relations among numbers, approach number combinations (i.e., basic facts), as well as represent and solve addition and subtraction problems.…

The number line is a powerful tool for supporting students' understanding of fraction magnitude. Fractions are a critical component of mathematics instruction in the elementary and intermediate grades. More specifically, understanding fraction magnitude is central to mathematical development. Yet, fractions are challenging for many students,…

Elizabeth C. Bolander – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
Students with disabilities are choosing to engage in remote schooling. Families of children with disabilities may never set foot in a physical school building. Yet, it is important for families to feel connected to their child's education and the school community. This column discusses strategies based in culturally relevant pedagogy to engage…

Emma Kate Thome – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
Stuttering is a common disorder addressed by speech-language pathologists in elementary schools. Although students who stutter likely receive specialized services from speech-language pathologists, other school personnel, including special and general educators, play a key role in creating supportive and positive learning environments for these…

Angela Tuttle Prince; Monic P. Behnken – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
Given the disproportionate rates of youth with disabilities who experience exclusionary discipline in schools, it is important to consider the involvement of law enforcement officers in the discipline of these students and the students' right to an equitable education. One recent case of concern was Wilson v. City of Southlake, which clarified…

Alexandria T. Cordell – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
Individuals with disabilities often have difficulties transitioning to employment after the completion of high school. This is especially true for individuals with autism spectrum disorder, as many of the soft skills needed for employment (e.g. communication, flexibility, teamwork) are characteristically difficult. Employment training in…

Students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience anxiety at higher rates than their neurotypical peers, which can negatively impact school performance. Anxiety symptoms for these students can be challenging to identify because they mimic diagnostic characteristics. As key intervention team members, school-based mental health professionals…

Aimee J. Hackney; Kristine Jolivette; Sara Sanders – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
A majority of students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD), particularly those served in alternative educational settings, have a history of trauma exposure before placement. Evidence-based interventions such as Check-In/Check-Out (CICO) may be more effective for these students if the interventions are systematically adapted to include…

Soyoung Park; Pamela M. Stecker; Sarah R. Powell – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2024
This article provides teachers with a toolkit for assessing students in the context of data-based individualization (DBI) in mathematics. Assessing students is a critical component of DBI because it provides teachers with information about what they may need to modify in their instructional programs. In this article, we provide teachers with…
