Our Services

The services provided by our staff are designed to assist states, districts, and schools to successfully implement strategies and intervention for struggling youth, and scale-up RTI and its components -- screening students, monitoring student progress, providing evidence-based interventions that adjust in intensity depending on a student's responsiveness, and identifying students who are under performing at school or in life.  To determine what services may be needed, staff collaboratively problem-solve with the requesting state, district, parents, or school to (a) identify and prioritize the areas of need, and (b) select evidence-based practices that can best meet those needs. We are available to provide assistance on environmental struggling students to states, districts, and schools in a number of ways:


  • One-time events or activities on academic/behavior or related topics

  • Short-term series of activities that facilitate the implementation of  classroom strategies that decreases behavior but maximizes learning

  • Sustained, multi-year, comprehensive sets of  on-going development for teachers or professionals who wants a in depth look at maximizing student achievement
