Cover of Going Virtual: Considerations for Adjusting Data-Based Individualization Implementation in Response to COVID-19

During fall 2020, educators provided virtual, in-person, and hybrid intervention with an ongoing need to engage with and support parents and families. As noted by Jones, Vaughn, and Fuchs (2020), evidence-based teaching strategies used in traditional face-to-face instruction are applicable in virtual settings as well. This includes scheduling frequent sessions, collecting data, and delivering small group or individualized instruction. Although the context and environment may have changed, the focus on providing high-quality interventions with validated practices, monitoring student progress, and adapting and intensifying supports based on student data as outlined in the data-based individualization (DBI) process continues to be applicable across virtual, in-person, or hybrid models. This document presents considerations for implementing DBI in light of COVID-19 with an emphasis on delivery in virtual settings.
