Intervention Specialist Forms

Forms for an Intervention Specialist to use in documenting prevention and intervention services.
Forms included are:

Behavior Observation Sheet-front & back
The primary form used by the Intervention Specialist for teacher and assistant principal
referrals and screening. This form should be readily available to any staff needing to
refer a student.
Intervention Specialist Referral Log
This log is for Intervention Specialists and is often placed within your Intervention
Specialist Binder. This allows for an accurate listing of students referred for services.
Follow up Observation Sheet
This is for classroom teachers to complete after the initial referral. It is how we
determine if the behavior has changed in the classroom.
Student Referral Sheet
This form is available for students to self-refer. Sometimes it is easier to check a list
rather than disclose verbally.
Intervention Specialist Checklist
There are certain duties that may need to be completed to provide services to students.
This checklist helps to keep things from falling through the cracks.
Intervention Specialist Feedback Form
This is how the Intervention Specialist communicates back to the student's teachers. This
form lets the teachers know what is planned for the student.
Process Evaluation
This form is used in evaluating the Intervention Specialist services, including how well
the services are being used, and what resources are being tapped for the students.
Intervention Specialist Referral Tracking Record
This form is used to track individuals who have been referred to the Intervention
Specialist, particularly in those areas that are measurable, such as grades, attendance, and
behavior.
Campus Impact
This is a way to contrast certain measurable outcomes at school, pre and post-
intervention services. This can answer the question, has the Intervention Specialists
services made an impact on our overall school?
Staff Satisfaction Survey
To gain some idea of what the staff thinks about the Intervention Specialist, use this
survey.
Student Satisfaction Survey
To gain some idea of what the students think about the Intervention Specialist, use this
survey. Be mindful that this survey is helpful when students know that they have been
referred to the Intervention Specialist and have been screened/received services. Many
students have no idea that they have been identified and screened.
Intervention Specialist Team Action Planning Sheet
This form is used to create a plan of action, outline implementation strategies, identify
staff needed, identify resources needed, and project a completion date.
