The Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity can be used to select or evaluate an intervention platform used as the validated intervention platform or the foundation of the DBI process. It can also be used to guide the adaptation of intensification of an intervention during the intervention adaptation step of the DBI process.
We know that validity, reliability, classification accuracy, statistical bias, and sample representativeness are important considerations when reviewing screening tools, but what do they actually mean? These five screening one-page documents provide a brief overview of each of these areas that are used on the NCII Screening Tools Charts.
This Excel tool is designed to help educators collect academic progress monitoring data across multiple measures as a part of the data-based individualization (DBI) process. This tool allows educators to store data for multiple students (across multiple measures), graph student progress, and set individualized goals for a student on specific measures.
Data Rich, Information Poor? Making Sense of Progress Monitoring Data to Guide Intervention Decisions
This webinar, led by Dr. Lynn Fuchs of Vanderbilt University and Dr. Lee Kern of Lehigh University, addresses a challenge faced by many teachers: feeling inundated by data while struggling to find useful information to guide intervention decision-making.
If you are like most educators, you agree with the idea of providing intensive intervention for students with the most intractable academic and behavior problems. The question you may be asking is, how do I find the time?
Data teams can use these checklists to monitor implementation of the initial planning meetings for individual students with intensive needs and ongoing review (progress monitoring) meetings.
Teams are a vital part of an effective multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) across both academics and behavior as well as special education. Making connections across the various teams used in MTSS and special education can be challenging.
The Academic Intervention Tools Chart is designed to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select interventions that best meet their individual needs.
Children with severe needs related to behavior and/or social or emotional skills may benefit from intensive intervention. Universal screening may be used to identify children who require behavior intervention, including intensive intervention. The behavior screening tools chart provides ratings of a screener's ability to identify students who may need more intensive support.
The Behavior Progress Monitoring Tools Chart is comprised of evidence-based progress monitoring tools that can be used to assess students’ social, emotional or behavioral performance, to quantify a student's rate of improvement or responsiveness to instruction, and to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction.
The Behavioral Intervention Tools Chart is comprised of studies conducted on programs beyond the core procedures (e.g., school-wide, basic classroom organization and management) that target small groups or individual students with social, emotional, or behavioral problems whose performance is non-responsive to the core procedures.
The National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) developed this self-paced module to increase users' knowledge of intensive intervention and data-based individualization (DBI).
NCII provides a series of reading lessons to support special education instructors, reading interventionists, and others working with students who struggle with reading.
NCII developed a series of mathematics lessons and guidance documents to support special education instructors, mathematics specialists, and others working with students who struggle with mathematics.
NCII developed a series of behavioral strategies to support teachers working with students with primary academic deficits and challenging behaviors. Each strategy incorporates key terminology, an overview of the purpose, and all associated materials. The strategies also integrate approaches for intensification for students with more challenging behaviors.
