This chapter covers Tier 2 interventions for acute or emerging cases of school refusal behavior. Tier 2 interventions in a Response to Intervention (RtI) model are directed toward at-risk students who require additional support beyond the core set of universal (Tier 1) intervention strategies. Tier 2 strategies for absenteeism are thus intended to address individual students with relatively new difficulties attending school as well as students who are clearly at risk for more extensive absentee problems. Sections include administration of these strategies, generic recommendations before intervention, psychological therapy (e.g., for anxiety and contingency management), family-based approaches, and teacher and peer-based mentoring.
