Special education service delivery has experienced many changes. Pre-referral intervention is the current method of choice to identify and treat mild disabilities in the general education classroom. The purpose of this study was to identify treatment variables and group variables that lead to treatment implementation in the general education classroom by the general education teacher. In addition, the current study sought to determine the relationship between general reason for referral (behavioral or academic) and treatment integrity. A significant relationship was found for the treatment variables and treatment integrity indicating that particular characteristics of an intervention lead to treatment integrity of that intervention. Statistical analyses did not reveal a significant relationship between group variables and reason for referral with treatment integrity.
