This training module, Using the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity Within the Data-Based Individualization Process: A Mathematics Example, introduces the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity and describes how it supports the DBI process by helping provide explicit guidance on how to select and evaluate validated mathematics intervention programs to best meet students’ needs and intensify or adapt those interventions when students or groups of students do not adequately respond. This module is a companion to Using the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity to Select, Design, and Intensify Intervention with a specific focus on mathematics. At the end of the training participants will be able to:

In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Powell an Associate Professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Texas at Austin highlights freely available tools and resources that can help educators consider a scope and sequence for math skills, assessment and intervention practices, instructional delivery, concepts and procedures for whole and rational numbers, intensification considerations, and more. The webinar reviews the content available from the Intensive Intervention Math Course Content. The course content consists of eight modules covering a range of math related topics. Each module includes video lessons, activities, knowledge checks, practice-based opportunities, coaching materials and other resources.
In this webinar, held February 19, 2019, Drs. Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds, Sarah Powell, and Devin Kearns, 1) reviewed the evidence-base behind explicit instruction for students with disabilities and 2) highlighted recently released course content that is designed to help educators learn how to deliver explicit instruction and review their current practices.
This module discusses approaches to intensifying academic interventions for students with severe and persistent learning needs. The module describes how intensification fits into DBI process and introduces four categories of intensification practices. It uses examples to illustrate concepts and provides activities to support development of teams’ understanding of these practices, and how they might be used to design effective individualized programs for students with intensive needs.
This collection contains modules that can be used for professional development for middle school leaders, teachers, interventionists and instructional coaches to build their capacity to students who require intervention in mathematics. Basic Facts and Computations. Building Fluency and Conceptual Understanding: Middle School Level Connecting Intervention and Core Instruction. Instructional Strategies to Bridge Skills that Lead to Success: Middle School Level
This module is designed for interventionists, special educators, and general educators to review instructional strategies that students with mathematics difficulties need to be successful in both core instruction and intervention. Students with mathematics difficulties may make progress in intervention but still struggle in core because there is often not a bridge or support to show how the intervention connects to core. This module addresses these needs and identifies how all teachers need to support generalization and build upon mathematics trajectories for students to be successful.
This collection contains modules that can be used for professional development for elementary leaders, teachers, interventionists and instructional coaches to build their capacity to support students who require mathematics intervention.
The purpose of this module is to review how to implement the Early Numeracy Intervention, a validated intervention program that can be used for Tier 2 math intervention, or as an intensive intervention platform within DBI.
The purpose of this module is to focus on the importance of fractions, including the prerequisite skills. Fractions have been cited as a key skill that students need in order to be more successful in advanced mathematics skills, including algebra. Fractions are a necessary skill to be included as part of tiered interventions for students as early as grade 3.
