Tier II Tidbit
Which students need Tier II support?
Even when Tier I is implemented with fidelity, some students will not respond well to Tier I.
BUT… not all students need individual behavior intervention plans.
SO… Tier II provides interventions for groups of students who have similar needs. Providing standard interventions targeted to specific needs is much more efficient and cost effective.
Tier II interventions are for...
- Students displaying frequent, but minor, problem behaviors across multiple locations
- Students needing enhanced Tier I supports to prevent escalating behavior
- Students with behaviors that are internalizing (e.g., nail biting, avoiding peer interaction) or externalizing (e.g., fighting with peers, excessive talking)
