Utilizing a problem solving process, such as RtI, is applicable to behavioral difficulties, much like it is applied to the academic arena. One similarity between academic and behavior systems is in program and intervention selection. Data collection is another commonality between RtI and behavior. In order to assess the level of intensity and selct a behavioral intervention, data must be obtained. Prior to intervening, a teacher ideally gathers baseline data on the student exhibiting problematic behaviors.

Behavior interventions, much like academic interventions, can and should be implemented in a systematic format. It is ideal to reduce student confusion by implementing school wide systems through assuring classroom and grade level consistency. Positive Behavior Support is one example of the behavioral systematic problem solving process, which utilizes various levels of programs of intervention.
