L. Interventions 

1. Definition of Intervention

Intervention refers to particular instructional techniques that attempt to expose the learner once again to concepts and skills that were not adequately learned during previous teaching/learning experiences. [Mar/3/21]

2. Considerations for Effective Interventions [Mar/3/21]

a) Interventions should be provided to students who are identified with needs. [Nov/27/08] [JC Feb/09] [2009 BGM] [Mar/3/21]

b) Interventions should be recognized as being distinctly different from student support services. [Nov/27/08] [JC Feb/09] [2009 BGM] [Mar/3/21]

c) Children requiring interventions should be recognized as pre-referral students who experience difficulties in learning which may be overcome by:

  1. a concentrated application of specific needs instruction, or
  2. ongoing supports and accommodations, or
  3. specific intervention, possibly for a short period of time, in a one/one or small group setting. [Nov/27/08] [JC Feb/09] [2009 BGM] [Mar/3/21]

d) Interventions can occur within all learning environments depending on the prevailing circumstances of any particular class. [Mar/3/21]

e) Identification of student difficulties should be based on an informal approach consistent with ongoing classroom evaluation and followed by individual student assessment by the regular classroom teacher(s). [Mar/3/21]

f) Interventions support should be determined by the assessed needs, interests, and abilities of the student. [Mar/3/21]

g) Interventions can be planned and delivered by regular classroom teachers and other school personnel, dependent on the needs of the child. [Nov/27/08] [JC Feb/09] [2009 BGM] [Mar/3/21]
