This fourteen minute video shares Wyoming’s journey in building the capacity of educators to implement data-based individualization (DBI) to improve academic and behavior outcomes for students with disabilities as part of their state systemic improvement plan (SSIP). Wyoming administrators, teachers, parents and students from Laramie County School District # 1 and preschool sites share how DBI implementation impacted teacher efficacy, team meetings, quality of services, student confidence, and state and local collaboration.
In this article, Dr. Jennifer Ledford shares information about single-case design research and how it relates to intensive intervention as well as resources from the Council for Exceptional Children Division for Research (CEC DR).
This webinar provides an overview of the ways in which intensive intervention connects to and supports key federal education policy initiatives such as Results Driven Accountability and how intensive intervention can support states in meeting the goals of their State Systemic Improvement Plan.
This webinar presented by Dr. Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds, discusses various approaches to progress monitoring, focusing on the value and implications of using progress monitoring to track the growth of students with intensive academic needs. Dr. Zumeta Edmonds walks through the steps of the process for using progress monitoring data to make instructional decisions for individual students.
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 Dr. Lou Danielson, Michele Walden-Doppke and Nicole Hitchener describes contextual factors that can support or impede the implementation of intensive intervention. Presenters discuss lessons learned about critical infrastructure elements and practices that were identified through NCII’s work with school sites, and provide an example from a Rhode Island district.
