Solid Roots: Tier 3 Intensive Interventions

Managing challenging behavior is a commonly cited frustration for many school administrators and staff. Maybe you can relate?

Solid Roots, our Tier 3 Intensive Behavior Support Framework, provides a proven, step-by-step plan that simplifies the process of creating an effective system for intensive social-emotional and behavior interventions that supports struggling learners.


What if your school could overcome these challenges and better support the social-emotional and behavior needs of your most at-risk learners?

Align practices for Tier 3 interventions to increase implementation fidelity.

Improve Collaboration

Create shared ownership of behavior supports by defining roles & responsibilities.

Track Student Progress

Effectively monitor student progress toward intervention & annual IEP progress goals.

An Overview of the Implementation Process

To facilitate long-term change, we offer coaching, training, and support for a full year. Our Tier 3 Behavior Support Implementation program provides a proven, step-by-step process that creates an effective system for intensive social-emotional and behavioral interventions that supports struggling learners.


Planning & Consensus


District leadership will work with an expert Emergent Tree coach to create a custom implementation plan utilizing our proven framework.

Early conversations focus on the purpose & components of our framework for Tier 3 interventions, identifying barriers and enablers, and clarifying roles.


Introductory Training


Campus teams meet to learn the Tier 3 Framework, including the daily intervention routines and social skills curriculum.

Campus teams will create operating procedures for intensive social-emotional and behavior intervention supports and learn how to use our Progress Monitoring Software.


Personalized Coaching Support


An Emergent Tree coach provides ongoing support. Teams assess progress using the Emergent Tree Tier 3 Quality Indicators during each coaching session.

Coaching sessions aim to build capacity on campuses by addressing barriers and collaboratively setting action items to further implementation.


Follow-Up Training & Support


A mid-year training session focuses on helping behavior teachers plan lessons that target replacement behaviors using the Emergent Tree social skills curriculum.

For district-wide implementation, this training can be offered in a way that allows for collaboration across campuses.


Yearly Program Review


Emergent Tree conducts a comprehensive evaluation of implementation across the components of our Tier 3 framework.

You'll receive reports of implementation levels, highlights of strengths, and suggested actions for campus improvement planning that will carry over into the next school year.

Results & Partnerships

We’ve partnered with schools across the United States who felt overwhelmed trying to navigate the intensive social-emotional and behavioral needs of their most at-risk learners. We’re committed to helping your campus or district build sustainable systems for intensive intervention in a way that is both effective for students and efficient for staff. But you don’t have to take our word for it!

Here’s what some of our partner campuses and districts have said about our work:

Emergent Tree has helped us create a system where everyone speaks the same language, and everyone is aligned in our practices. This has made a huge impact in so many areas. For example, since we've been working with Emergent Tree, our administrators have blown me away with their knowledge of behavior and how they lead conversations when unwanted behavior is occurring on their campus.

As a result of Emergent Tree supports and services, we have experienced greater consistency and alignment across our campuses.  Emergent Tree has supported us in shifting our lens, changing our practices, and redefining how we see and address student behavior.  The team of professionals at Emergent Tree truly cares about kids...and educators.

I'd describe the support provided by Emergent Tree staff as phenomenal because it is customized to meet our needs. They truly meet us where we are without judgment. Every Emergent Tree staff member has been helpful, resourceful, and patient. We truly value this partnership.
