Tier II

Level 2-Target

This is a secondary prevention which is aimed at the roughly 5-10% of students considered at risk for developing behavioral disorders or mental illness.  These students enter school with significant risk factors and are usually unresponsive to universal prevention strategies alone.  The goal here is to decrease opportunities in which high-risk behaviors might be fostered, and to establish effective and efficient pro-social skills that would increase their responsiveness to primary interventions.  This secondary intervention must be structured to meet needs of at-risk students such as group interventions that target areas of student need.
