"Educators frequently need to tailor interventions to the unique learning styles of their students. The Intervention Library provides easy access to interventions and strategies to utilize with individual or groups of students. The IL: FIRST saves practitioners countless hours that would have been spent researching programs and techniques by providing the information in an easy to navigate program. The IL: FIRST is an extremely valuable tool for educators, interventionists, and school psychologists."
--Christina Hanel, Psy.D., Lead School Psychologist, Washington Elementary School District, Phoenix, AZ
"The Intervention Library is like a One-Stop shop for finding interventions and resources to help individuals with academic and other learning difficulties. For the first time, after having tested a person, a clinician can easily establish goals and gather materials to meet the specific needs identified. What a tool for clinicians, evaluators, educators, and teachers! Wish I had this when I was teaching supervision and diagnostics. It is a marvelous tool.... It is truly a gift and a wonderful contribution to the field."
--Donna Geffner, Ph.D., Ed.D. (Hon.), CCC-SP/A, Past President of ASHA and ASHA Fellow and Honors
"The Intervention Library is a game-changer. In my public school and private practice work, the suggestions from the Intervention Library add research-based suggestions for the parents, school, and the student. It is great to have one place to search for ideas, strategies, and interventions for students who are struggling. I will be using this at the pre-referral as well as post-assessment levels."
