Transcript of Pre-referral,Completeing checklist, FBA

By:Melissa Paulsen & Amy Gibbs Pre-referral, Checklist, FBA *The classroom teacher has a big responsibility in the pre-referral process.* Pre-referral The response-to-intervention team might then elect to refer the student for further in-depth evaluations by the special education teachers. If in-class intervention, small-group pull-outs and/or different interventions have been tried and student is still not making adequate progress.... Then what? Most of us have difficulty remembering a list that is longer than 5 to 7 items. In many cases, just writing down our thoughts or creating a list of things to do, allows our minds to focus on other things which, in turn, make our lives less stressful. Using a checklist is an excellent way to make our lives simpler and more productive. Checklist RTI?
What does RTI mean? RTI guidelines require the classroom teacher to
continually evaluate the quality and methods of teaching, in addition to assessing the student for understanding. Forms of Evaluation -Informal assessments,
-Anecdotal notes,
_ Portfolio work samples *The teacher never makes decisions based on only one method of assessment.* http://websis.sd282.org/applications/website_teacher/index.php?AMRefID=&outVOU=5&im_refid=84&page=GI62 Sources: http://files.csd.org/linked_files/Special%20Ed/nov_2010/FBA_BIP_WS_11-23-2010/resource_not_required/First%2520District%2520Tools.pdf Examples Why are Checklist Important?

Handbook of Research in Emotional and Behavioral Disorders SIMPLE Functional Assessment

b. the teacher provides background information related to the problem and the team works to develop possible solutions. RTI is comprised of three levels of intervention:
1. utilizing high-quality instruction in core curriculum with all students
2. provides targeted group instruction and remediation to improve performance
3. intensive individualized interventions http://www.xtranormal.com/watch/13769229/chase Lechtenberger, D. (2008). Project ideal. Retrieved from
