View Module 

This interactive self-paced module:

  • defines intensive intervention and DBI
  • describes how intensive intervention fits within a tiered system such as MTSS, RTI, or PBIS, and
  • demonstrates how intensive intervention can provide a systematic process to deliver specialized instruction for students with disabilities

Users will have the opportunity to view DBI in action through two case examples that illustrate how a school team would use NCII tools and resources to support a student struggling with behavioral challenges (Jackson) and reading challenges (Michelle).

As you engage in the module, the accompanying note-taking guide provides a place to take notes on the key themes and answer the summary questions at the end of each section. After you complete the module, check your reflections against the provided responses at the end of this document

To access this content you will need to log in or register for an account in the PROGRESS Center and NCII Learning Module Library. In addition to the self-paced module, the course includes a collection of resources highlighted in the module and a course completion certificate. You will only be able to access the course completion certificate once you have completed the module. Please contact with any questions.
