Safe & Civil Schools is pleased to announce the release of a new addition to its series, Behavioral Response to Intervention: Creating a Continuum of Problem-Solving & Support.
This new resource is designed for K-12 school personnel with a responsibility for ensuring that students' needs for behavioral (social/emotional) support are met. The book presents a blueprint for how to organize the services a school delivers to all of its students, even those with severe behavior issues. The model proposed in this unique resource ensures that intervention design and implementation occurs in the most time-, personnel-, and cost-effective manner possible while still meeting students' needs.
We believe the ideas proposed in this B-RTI model can help educators keep students in school and reduce the number of students referred for special education services.
But, don't take our word for it — read what leaders in the field of education have to say about Behavioral Response to Intervention.
