This rubric uses descriptors of the dimensions of the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity to support teams in selecting and evaluating validated interventions for small groups or individual students. Teams may consider using data available on the National Center on Intensive Intervention Academic Tools Chart and the publishers’ websites as well as results from previous implementation efforts. Each dimension will be rated on a scale of 0– Fails to Address Standard to 3 – Addresses Standard Well.

Implementation Guidance and Considerations
This module focuses primarily on selecting evidence-based interventions that align with the functions of behavior for students with severe and persistent learning and behavior needs. The emphasis of this training will include four main content areas: (a) relating assessment to function, (b) selecting evidence-based interventions that align with functions of behavior, (c) linking assessment and monitoring, and (d) connecting data with the evidence-based interventions selected. The overarching goal is to connect concepts and theories in behavior and begin planning how intensive intervention can be put into practice to support students with intensive behavioral needs.
This updated training module provides a rationale for intensive intervention and an overview of data-based individualization (DBI), NCII’s approach to providing intensive intervention. DBI is a research-based process for individualizing validated interventions through the systematic use of assessment data to determine when and how to intensify intervention. Two case studies, one academic and one behavioral, are used to illustrate the process and highlight considerations for implementation.
This webinar presented by Dr. Allison Gruner Gandhi, reviews the NCII tools chart on academic interventions, and how practitioners can use these charts to gather information about, and ultimately select, interventions that meet their needs.
This webinar presented by Dr. Lori Newcomer, provides an overview of the key features of behavioral support systems and walked through a “Needs Assessment” document that can be used in various ways (self-assessment, interview, etc..) to examine a school’s behavioral support system and target areas for improvement.
Implementing intensive intervention to improve outcomes for students with significant learning and behavior needs is challenging work! In this webinar, panelists share lessons learned from five years of implementing intensive intervention at the district and school level.
Do you have questions about data-based individualization and implementing intensive intervention for students with severe and persistent academic and behavioral needs? In this webinar, expert panelists Drs. Chris Lemons, T. Chris Riley-Tillman, and Teri Marx address frequently asked questions surrounding implementation of intensive intervention.
What is an evidence-based practice? How do I know if evidence shows that a practice will be right for my students? Many practitioners ask these critical questions every day as they are faced with making decisions regarding how to best meet the needs of their students.
This webinar, presented by Laura Magnuson, a technical assistance provider for NCII, provides an overview of the rationale and purpose for secondary or Tier 2 interventions.
In this video, Mike Jacobsen, Assessment and Curriculum Director, White River School District in Washington State discusses how their districts planned for and implemented intensive intervention within the districts RTI model.
