SECTION 6
REGULAR EDUCATION INTERVENTION

The rationale for systematic regular education intervention is to identify problems early and prevent them from becoming major problems. Successful regular education interventions can negate the need for enrolling the child in a special education program, as well as avoid the stigma and "labeling" often associated with receiving special education. However, regular education intervention activities must not be instituted to divert or delay a referral to special education.One type of regular education intervention support is to informally share effective interventions with parents and teachers. A second type of regular education intervention is more formalized and might involve:

(1) specific support to parents and/or classroom teachers from school personnel,
(2) documentation of specific interventions tried, and
(3) formative measurement of student progress in areas of difficulty.

The type, duration, and result of regular education interventions should be well documented. The evaluation data collected and recorded will indicate the effectiveness of various interventions. If the child is referred for an individual evaluation, this regular education intervention information will provide important additional data to determine areas of need and to make recommendations.The support for school personnel may come from school psychologists, special education consulting teachers, principals, district curriculum consultants, or some combination of available support services. The interventions may involve curriculum adaptations; social skills training implemented in the home and/or classroom; cooperative learning activities; changes in classroom organization; and changes in the teaching techniques, school placement, or schedule (refer to Appendix I for examples of accommodations and intervention activities). It is recommended that the school inform the child's parents of the regular education interventions being implemented.
