Interventions in English Language Arts
Arlington Public Schools (APS) has a variety of researched-based intervention programs and approaches available. It is our goal to provide reading intervention to any student who is need of additional explicit instruction and support in one or more areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. Students participate in intervention based on individual needs to master specific literacy skills to become successful readers, as a supplement to core instruction. Each of the intervention approaches utilize assessment to determine specific individual needs and allow teachers to provide explicit instruction, guided practice, and monitor student progress. APS is committed to multiple tiers of support for all students which begins with quality classroom instruction involving whole group, small group, and individualized settings.
