Implementing Intensive Intervention: Lessons Learned from the Field

Implementing Intensive Intervention: Lessons Learned from the Field

Resource Type
Developed By
National Center on Intensive Intervention

This report presents findings from an exploratory study of how five high-performing districts, which we refer to as NCII’s knowledge development sites, defined and implemented intensive intervention. The findings offer lessons that other schools and districts can use when planning for, implementing and working to sustain their own initiatives to provide intensive intervention for students with the most severe and persistent learning and/or behavioral needs.
