Reviewing Your Selected and Intensive Levels of Support

Match Supports to Needs Learning Module

The Match Supports to Needs module helps schools develop a systematic process for identifying interventions and additional challenges most suited to the needs of their students, at the appropriate level of intensity and support. 


The Match Supports to Needs module resources include research-based recommendations to guide instruction in the selected and intensive levels for both math and reading. Specific strategies, tools, and examples help teams develop processes to match needs with their continuum of supports, engage families, assure cultural responsiveness, document and communicate support plans, and gauge fidelity of plan implementation.
