Description: The Academic Intervention Monitoring System (AIMS) is a guidebook designed to provide teachers and other school-based professionals with the resources they need for developing, monitoring, and evaluating classroom-based, empirically supported interventions for academic difficulties. To this end, the AIMS guidebook is solution focused and addresses four objectives. First, the AIMS provides a review of factors for teachers and intervention teams to consider when assessing a student’s academic competence and identifying potential strategies for addressing academic difficulties. Second, AIMS provides a framework for linking assessment results to intervention design and implementation. Third, AIMS includes a review of intervention strategies that promote the development of a student’s academic skills (the basic and complex skills that are a central part of academic curricula) and academic enablers (i.e., behaviours and attitudes that facilitate the learning of academic skills. Finally, this guidebook provides a review of practical methods for monitoring and evaluating intervention effectiveness.
