Designing and Delivering Intensive Intervention in Behavior (DBI Training Series Module 8)

Developed By: National Center on Intensive Intervention

This module focuses primarily on selecting evidence-based interventions that align with the functions of behavior for students with severe and persistent learning and behavior needs. The emphasis of this training will include four main content areas: (a) relating assessment to function, (b) selecting evidence-based interventions that align with functions of behavior, (c) linking assessment and monitoring, and (d) connecting data with the evidence-based interventions selected. The overarching goal is to connect concepts and theories in behavior and begin planning how intensive intervention can be put into practice to support students with intensive behavioral needs.

The module is intended to be delivered by a trained, knowledgeable professional. It includes a PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes and handouts. A coaching guide, intended for coaches supporting school or district implementation of DBI, is also included and provides suggested activities to facilitate planning and application of training content. This module is part of the DBI Training Series. Click here to view the entire series.

NCII has developed a companion Considerations for Planning Tiered Behavior Support resource that includes guiding questions, brief descriptions of the tiers, and definitions of key terms.
