Academic Intervention in the World of COVID-19

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 3,9
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 5: Promoting Academic Success

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. design their telehealth academic interventions.
  2. analyze academic intervention data collected during telehealth academic intervention.
  3. describe the effectiveness of telehealth academic interventions.
  4. describe how interventions and instructional support to develop academic skills fits into a comprehensive role, as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.


When schools and clinics were closed due to COVID-19, school psychologists had to find new ways to provide the vital interventions their students had in place. This study will show results from incremental rehearsal and listening passage preview, repeated reading, and error correction prior to COVID-19, during the switch to telehealth, and after the return to the standard clinic model. Practitioners will be provided the data and tips for efficient academic interventions via the platform zoom.
