This chapter covers Tier 3 interventions for severe cases of school refusal behavior. Sections include expanded Tier 2 interventions, alternative educational programs and schools, and parent/family involvement strategies. Tier 3 attendance problems can thought of as near or past the “tipping point,” meaning that considerable effort must be made to reintegrate a youth into school or that only a limited chance exists of resuming full-time attendance in a regular classroom setting. These cases thus demand a concentrated intervention approach and frequent progress monitoring. An emphasis must be placed on addressing the many comorbid problems and influential contextual variables seen in these cases, achieving school attendance or performance in some form, enhancing academic integration and remediation, and increasing parent involvement.
