Integrating Academic and Behavior Supports Within an RTI Framework

April 25, 2012

Increasingly, schools are faced with challenges stemming from the intensity and scope of student needs in their settings. With each scientifically based response to these needs come separate data systems, treatment protocols, teams, and interventions. Because of this, a major consideration for schools is to ensure that teams work smarter, not just harder. Join Hank Bohanon and Steve Goodman for our next RTI Talk as they answer your questions about the components of a well-designed, integrated model of academic and behavior supports (systems, practices, and data) and offer specific tips on establishing a school-wide system of tiered supports that improves student outcomes and helps prevent school failure.
