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 systemic process to deliver specialized instruction for students with disabilities

In addition, 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). You may choose to view one or both of the case examples based on your interest.
