Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity

This Teaching & Learning professional learning opportunity will provide content, material, and strategies to assist educators in meeting the needs of students in their district.

Important Session Information:

Unsure of how to intensify student interventions? Do you feel overwhelmed, confused and unsure if what you are doing is even working? This session is based on the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity (Fuchs, Fuchs, & Malone, 2017) work completed by the National Center on Intensive Intervention. These steps have been researched and vetted as best practices for identifying the right intervention for the right students. It works hand and hand with Data Based Individualization (Tier 3). In this session you will look at the following information developed by the experts at the National Center on Intensive Intervention:

Strength: the evidence of effectiveness for students with intensive needs;

Dosage: the number of opportunities the student has to respond and receive feedback from the teacher;

Alignment: how well the intervention matches the targeted academic skills or behaviors of concern, as well as incorporates grade-appropriate standards or behaviors we would expect for a particular context;

Attention to transfer: whether the intervention is explicitly designed to help students make connections between the skills taught in the intervention and skills learned in other contexts and environments;

Comprehensiveness: how well the intervention incorporates a comprehensive array of explicit instruction principles; and

Behavioral or academic support: whether an academic intervention incorporates behavioral strategies that may support students with self-regulation, motivation, or externalizing behaviors that may impact their ability to learn, or whether a behavioral intervention considers academic components as part of the intervention.

Ongoing use of progress monitoring data and other diagnostic data sources: how to intensify and individualize the intervention based on student need.
