Learn about the work of the NCII and how the Center is building knowledge and capacity of state and local leaders, faculty and professional development providers, educators, and other stakeholders to support implementation of intensive intervention for students with severe and persistent learning and/or social, emotional, or behavioral needs using data-based individualization (DBI). The Progress Toward Outcomes report is an annual report summarizing NCII’s progress toward meeting project goals. This report reflect activities completed between October 2021-September 2022 which represents the first year of funding under Award No. H326Q210001. NCII Progress Toward Outcomes (Year 1)
Implementation Guidance and Considerations
In this webinar, NCII’s Caitlyn Majeika and Aleksis Kincaid provide an overview of the Academic Intervention Taxonomy Briefs and describe how they can help teachers design productive intervention programs for students with intensive academic needs. Presenters share how educators can use information from the briefs to understand the strengths and weaknesses of an intervention based on the dimensions of the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity; evaluate the appropriateness of interventions on the academic intervention tools chart; and guide decisions about the selection or purchase of a new intervention. In addition, Kim St. Martin, Director of MiMTSS, shares how Michigan schools and MiMTSS staff have used the briefs to review academic interventions.
NCII was featured in the Midwest Symposium for Leadership in Behavior Disorders ReThinking Behavior Winter 2023 Issue. The article reviews the data-based individualization (DBI) process and highlights resources to support implementation that are available on the NCII website.
NCII is excited to host our first-ever Intensive Intervention Institute this summer! When: June 27-28, 2023 Where: American Institutes for Research Office in Crystal City, Virginia Who: Teacher Preparation Faculty and State and Local Leaders Stay tuned for more information and registration for this two-day in-person institute coming soon!
This handout describes three validated goal-setting strategies educators can use to set intervention goals using general outcome measures.
Opportunity to register for this CoP is now closed. Additional opportunities for local leaders will occur in the future. Are you an local education agency leader or district level personnel interested in learning more about how to support and scale data-based individualization (DBI) implementation? NCII is excited to launch a community of practice (CoP) for local leaders. During the CoP, you’ll get to learn from experts, develop an action plan, and network with other local leaders.
Opportunity to register for this CoP is now closed. Additional opportunities for professional development providers and coaches will occur in the future. Are you an professional development provider interested in learning more about data-based individualization (DBI) and how to support educators to implement DBI? NCII is excited to launch a community of practice (CoP) for individuals who work in schools, districts, or state agencies who conduct, design, or supervise professional development activities for educators on topics related to intensive intervention. You’ll get to learn from experts and network with others in similar roles.
This course is the first in a series focused on progress monitoring. This module introduces progress monitoring and role progress monitoring plays in the DBI process.
The NCII has established a standard process to evaluate the scientific rigor of commercially available assessments that can be used as part of a DBI process. The 2022 call for submissions for behavior screening and progress monitoring tools is NOW OPEN.
This webinar, Getting it Right from the Start: Why Embedding Data-Based Individualization in Teacher Education Programs Matters, discusses strategies to help teacher education faculty integrate the principles of intensive intervention within undergraduate and graduate-level programs for aspiring and current teachers. The webinar highlights free and publicly available resources for faculty to embed within courses and clinical experiences, including materials from a recent community of practice (CoP) that comprised educator preparation faculty.
