This question bank includes questions that teams can use to develop a hypothesis about why an individual or group of students may not be responding to an intervention. The hypothesis should help guide intervention planning and selection of intensification strategies using the Intervention Intensification Strategy Checklist. When developing a hypothesis, teams should consider the intervention design, fidelity of implementation, and learner needs. Intervention fidelity data collected using the Student Intervention Implementation Log and informal diagnostic data may help teams answer the questions included in the question bank.
Implementation Guidance and Considerations
The pandemic has disrupted and, in many cases hindered, learning for all students – most particularly for our most vulnerable populations. Data literacy is key to understanding and tailoring instructional decisions to address students’ varying needs. In this webinar panelists discuss strategies and frameworks to ensure educators are data literate and understand how data literacy can help districts and schools address learning opportunity gaps.
Support from leaders is essential for effective DBI implementation. This resource illustrates how DBI can help principals and local level administrators leverage existing resources, integrate supports for academics and behavior, define Tier 3, align special education and MTSS, establish effective data meetings, and improve outcomes for students who are at-risk for poor learning outcomes. In addition, the resource shares strategies and resources available to support implementation
Teams are a vital part of an effective multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) across both academics and behavior as well as special education. Making connections across the across the various teams used in MTSS and special education can be challenging. This resource from NCII and the PBIS Center, provides information about how DBI can support IEP implementation and provides a table with key considerations for teams working across the MTSS system.
This webinar, presented by Kate Augustyn, Debra Jennings, and Kelly Orginski, discusses the importance of family engagement and provides examples of ways to engage families to support 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.
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.
