In this webinar, experts from the PROGRESS Center and National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) will model how practitioners can use data-based individualization (DBI) to develop and implement SDI for students with disabilities. A panel of special educators will share how using DBI improved the efficiency and effectiveness of their service delivery, communication with families, and collaboration with other educators.
Implementation Guidance and Considerations
Leveraging Data-Based Individualization (DBI) to Design and Deliver Specially Designed Instruction (SDI)
This course is the second in a series on progress monitoring. This module describes two types of academic progress monitoring measures and considerations for selecting an academic progress monitoring tool.
NCII staff and partners are excited to present a number of sessions at the upcoming CEC 2023. We hope you will join us for the following sessions: Workshop 08 - Put the “I” in IEPs Using High-quality Tools for Development and Implementation When: Wednesday March 1, 2023 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Presenters: Dr. Donna Sacco and Amy Peterson Note: This workshop requires an additional registration fee. Integrating Intensive Intervention Content Within Teacher Education Courses When: March 2, 2023 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Presenters: Lindsey Hayes, Erica Lembke, and Sarah Powell Program Chair Invited: Using DBI to Promote Improved Outcomes Across Educational Landscapes: University, SEA, LEA, and School Examples
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)
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 the inaugural Intensive Intervention Institute: Building Knowledge and Capacity for Faculty, State, and District Leaders. The two-day in person Intensive Intervention Institute aims to build the knowledge and capacity of state and local leaders and teacher preparation faculty 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).
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.
