The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the Center’s accomplishments and to highlight a set of lessons learned from the 26 schools that implemented intensive intervention while receiving technical support from the Center. These lessons include:

This series of videos provides brief instructional examples for supporting students who need intensive instruction in the area of place value computation. Within college- and career-ready standards place value is taught in K through Grade 5. These videos may be used as each concept is introduced, or with students in higher grade levels who continue to struggle with the concepts. Special education teachers, math interventionists, and others working with struggling students may find these videos helpful.

This video illustrates the use of scaffolding with manipulatives to teach students to group objects by tens with counting by ones.  When students practice counting numbers greater than 10 with manipulatives, they learn to recognize the patterns in place value and they begin to think about sets of 10 objects as one unit. Students develop fluency in counting by ones, and then counting by groups of 10 and ones. Once that skills is mastered they are ready to practice opportunities to count by tens and ones to determine cardinality (i.e., the total amount of the set). 

This series of videos provides brief instructional examples for supporting students who need intensive instruction in the area of numeracy and counting. Within college- and career-ready standards numeracy and counting are taught in Pre-K through Grade 1. These videos may be used as each concept is introduced, or with students in higher grade levels who continue to struggle with the concepts. Special education teachers, math interventionists, and others working with struggling students may find these videos helpful.

The purpose of this guide is to provide brief explanations of practices that can be implemented when working with students in need of intensive intervention in mathematics. Special education instructors, math interventionists, and others working with students who struggle with mathematics may find this guide helpful. Specific topics covered include the following: Explicit, Systematic Instruction Effective Questioning Concrete, Representational/Visual/Pictorial, Abstract/Symbolic Models

This Module, the second in a series on intensive intervention, offers information on making data-based instructional decisions. Specifically, the resource discusses collecting and analyzing progress monitoring and diagnostic assessment data. Developed in collaboration with the National Center on Intensive Intervention at American Institutes for Research and the CEEDAR Center, this resource is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).

This Module, first in a series of two, overviews data-based individualization and provides information about adaptations for intensifying and individualizing instruction. Developed in collaboration with the National Center on Intensive Intervention at American Institutes for Research and the CEEDAR Center, this resource is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).

Question: What do you need to consider when selecting a behavioral progress monitoring tool? 

Response to Intervention (RTI) and Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) are frameworks for integrating instruction, evidence-based interventions, and assessments to meet the academic and behavior needs of all students. The essential components of MTSS are as follows: screening, progress monitoring, a multilevel prevention system, and data-based decision making (National Center on Response to Intervention, 2010).
