Understanding the Characteristics of Effective Interventions

As we continue to develop our effectiveness at responding when students don’t learn through effective interventions, it is important to reflect on what the research says constitutes effective interventions.

In “Simplifying Response to Intervention”, Mike Mattos and is co-authors highlight 5 characteristics that constitute defective interventions:

1) Research-based
2) Directive
3) Administered by a trained professional
4) Targeted
5) Timely

As we continue to develop our system of interventions, both in the classroom and school wide, keeping these 5 characteristics in mind is critical.
