In recent years the topic of prereferral activities has received increasing attention in the field of education. The move toward prereferral interventions stems from dissatisfaction with the current system of referring a student for special education services (Graden, Casey & Christenson, 1985; Curtis, Zins, & Graden, 1987). In this system a child is referred for evaluation by the classroom teacher if the teacher feels the child is having academic or behavioral difficulties.
