Purpose: The goal of this project is to develop a web-based solution to self-management, as well as support connections for high school students with learning disabilities or an emotional behavioral disability (mild/moderate). The idea is for these students to use self-management forms to monitor both academic productivity and behavioral performance, resulting in increased connectivity, accountability, and sharing of data with those that support them.

Method: Activities of this project include: (a) integrating two evidence-based strategies ("Check & Connect" and "Self-management") in a web-based solution to capitalize on an improved use of data in a Response-to-Intervention model; (b) combining new technology with existing materials and methodologies; and (c) conducting usability tests and a field trial until a fully-operating system is launched.
