Resources

Tiered Academic Supports (Including the Integration of Behavioral Supports for Academic Success)

  • This information brief defines response to intervention (RTI), reviews the essential components, and answers frequently asked questions.

  • This video resource describes several strategies for supporting youth in juvenile justice facilities both academically and behaviorally. The strategies include conducting initial screening for a variety of needs, targeted behavioral and academic needs, and the use of progress monitoring to measure the impact of interventions and adjust services as needed. The video identifies potential barriers to these practices and several other resources that may be helpful.

  • This online Module, first in a series of two developed by the Iris Center, overviews data-based individualization and provides information about adaptations for intensifying and individualizing instruction. Developed in collaboration with the CEEDAR Center, the Iris Center, and the National Center on Intensive Intervention at American Institutes for Research, this resource is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).

  • This online Module, the second in a series on intensive intervention developed by the Iris Center, offers information on making data-based instructional decisions. Specifically, the resource discusses collecting and analyzing progress monitoring and diagnostic assessment data. Developed in collaboration with the CEEDAR Center, the Iris Center, and the National Center on Intensive Intervention at American Institutes for Research, this resource is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).

  • This webpage describes MTSS and its relationship to PBIS. It includes a graphic depicting the two models and links to additional resources.

  • This archived webinar and associated resources features research and practitioner experts who present the theoretical foundation of facility-wide multi-tiered PBIS, as well as the key aspects of evidence-based best practices, data-driven decision making, lessons learned, and implications for high-quality implementation of tier 1 and tier 2 interventions and supports. Youth from the Grand Mesa Youth Services Center (Grand Junction, Colorado) also share their personal experiences with PBIS in the juvenile justice setting.

  • This toolkit provides an overview of the issues related to academic assessment, tools to track student and facility progress, and tips for program improvement.

  • This tip sheet is intended for administrators who are choosing a new pre-post assessment for a facility or who are reevaluating their existing testing procedures.

  • This issue brief offers an overview of the link between student behavior and traditional discipline responses by schools and how both affect academic achievement. It presents two central arguments: (1) supportive behavior management practices are critical to helping youth achieve academic success while in school and preventing unnecessary justice system involvement, and (2) supportive behavior management also can make a difference for youth already in the justice system.
