Supplemental and Intervention Programs

These materials are intended for flexible use as part of differentiated instruction or as interventions that meet student learning needs in specific areas (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension). Most students can benefit from the extra practice provided by Supplemental Programs. Other students will need an Intervention Program that guides more intensive instruction.

Tier 3 Intervention Programs

Florida students who have been retained two times in third grade (Tier 3) are in need of instruction that is more intensive, more explicit, more systematic, and more motivating than instruction they have previously received. This section provides lists of programs that have been reviewed by FCRR and may be appropriate to be implemented with these students. There are other programs that may be appropriate for these students but not yet reviewed by FCRR.

Recommended Reading about Interventions

These articles have been grouped roughly by category. Some of them, of course, address more than one of the categories, and these articles have been placed in more than one section. Others are simply placed in the category that is consistent with their primary focus, although they may have content related to other areas as well.
