The multi-tiered approach has three levels of intensity
which are coordinated to student needs based upon
The three levels of intervention include the universal,
supplemental, and intensive tiers. The universal tier (Tier 1)
is comprised of 80-90% of the student population.
Tier 1 includes high quality core instruction.
Tier 2 is the supplemental tier and includes 5-15% of
the student population. This tier includes evidence-based
interventions of moderate intensity.
Tier 3 of the model is the intensive tier that that is
comprised of 1-5% of the student population.
The intensive tiers prevention level includes
individualized interventions of increased intensity for
students who show minimal response to tier two preventions.
