An intervention is a systematic attempt by educators to provide students with research-based supports that ensure meaningful access to the general education curriculum. These data-based interventions ensure students are provided with supports they need to meet and exceed grade-level standards. Interventions should be conducted in addition to grade level standards based core instruction.
A comprehensive system of research-validated interventions includes a graduated set of safety nets aligned to specific student needs as evidenced by assessment data that is directly linked to student performance. Research-validated interventions are implemented based on the type, level, and intensity of student need. Often these interventions are tiered and are based upon student assessment data (See Pennsylvania’s Response to Instruction and Intervention Model).
