Best Practice in Truancy Prevention/Intervention: Tier 2 and Tier 3

Show Summary Details

Preview

The previous chapter addressed the selection of evidence-based practices and the implementation of strategies to address attendance/truancy at the Tier 1 school-wide level. This chapter addresses interventions at the Tier 2 targeted group and Tier 3 intensive individual levels. Although Tier 1 interventions could address general disillusionment with school, specific precipitating events will most likely need to be addressed by Tier 2 targeted group or Tier 3 intensive individual-interventions.

Keywords: truancy prevention; intervention programs; student intervention; school attendance; evidence-based practice; targeted-group intervention
