Introduction to Intensive Intervention

The National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) developed Module 1: Introduction to Intensive Intervention to increase users’ knowledge of intensive intervention and data-based individualization (DBI), NCII’s approach to intensive intervention.

This interactive self-paced module:

  • defines intensive intervention and DBI
  • describes how intensive intervention fits within a tiered system such as MTSS, RTI, or PBIS, and
  • demonstrates how intensive intervention can provide a systemic process to deliver specialized instruction for students with disabilities.  

In addition, users will have the opportunity to view DBI in action through two case examples that illustrate how a school team would use NCII tools and resources to support a student struggling with behavioral challenges (Jackson) and reading challenges (Michelle). You may choose to view one or both of the case examples based on your interest.

Viewing the module should take you between 30-45 minutes. Additional time may be necessary to explore the tools and resources referenced in the module.
