Overview

This practical sourcebook presents more than 70 interventions that have been empirically demonstrated to improve the classroom learning environment, bolster academic achievement, and enhance student behavior and social competence. Each intervention is delineated in a brief, standardized format that describes its purpose, lists needed materials, and provides step-by-step implementation procedures. Geared toward optimal utility and accessibility, all of the interventions can easily be delivered by regular classroom teachers and make use of existing or readily available resources. The book includes guidelines for designing, implementing, and evaluating school-based interventions, as well as case examples illustrating how several interventions can be combined to create a comprehensive program for individual students or entire classes.

"...a practical sourcebook presenting over 70 interventions that have been demonstrated to improve the classroom learning environment...includes step-by-step implementation procedures." Appropriate for: School Psychologists, Mental Health Professionals.

From the Publisher

"Effective School Interventions provides school-based consultation students a well-written, well-researched catalog of proactive interventions. My graduate students love the book for its user-friendly format and organization. I find the book invaluable for its application of rigorous standards in the selection of interventions. This book is a 'must' for the consultation student."--Jon Lasser, PhD, EAPS Dept., Southwest Texas State University, San Marcos, TX

"This book has become a well-respected intervention manual for my graduate students in school psychology as they begin advanced practicum courses. Effective School Interventions is a very comprehensive resource and provides detailed, step-by-step information on empirically based interventions. Original references are provided and additional information can be found regarding materials needed, useful observations, and strategies for evaluating student progress. As the pre-referral process becomes more and more important in schools, Natalie Rathvon's book will prove to be a useful tool for brainstorming new ideas. This book should be a valued resource for graduate-level students and practitioners in any field who work with school-age children."--Merilee McCurdy, PhD, Assistant Professor, University of Nebraska, Lincoln

"Rathvon has provided a significant link toward bridging the research-to-practice gap in school-based intervention. The book is enhanced by its emphasis on ecological, preventive, and practical problem solving, and by its collaborative and consultive intervention framework. This text should be required reading for students in special education and school psychology training programs."--Melody Tankersley, PhD, Special Education Program, Kent State University

"The book contains a wide range of interventions that are useful to school psychologists-in-training."--Jeff Laurent, Professor of Psychology, Illinois State University

"Natalie Rathvon has produced a practical, empirically based guide to interventions that work. This book stands out in contrast to other compilations offering brief lists of 'interventions' that typically are not well described, are overly labor intensive, and are not well supported by research. I highly recommend this book not only as a manual on specific interventions, but also as a guide to high-quality intervention planning in general."--Janet L. Graden, PhD, School Psychology Program, University of Cincinnati

"With its contemporary emphasis on proactive strategies for preventing problems, and intervention and support strategies appropriate for classwide use, Effective School Interventions is bound to be well received by teachers, school psychologists, counselors, and other school professionals. In addition, the easy-to-read format and presentation make this a book professionals will turn to again and again in their daily work."--Gary Stoner, PhD, School of Education, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
