During their 3rd year of study, NCLII-2 Scholars are assigned to a working group with other Scholars to prepare a Masters-level university course focused on intensive intervention for children with complex learning and behavior needs. These courses recognize the considerable overlap in learning and behavioral difficulties experienced by many children and address the dearth of instructional materials that address these co-occurring difficulties.  Co-occurring difficulties may occur in domains such as mathematics and reading; reading or math and ADHD; reading or math and challenging behaviors; reading or math and social-emotional difficulties including anxiety; Autism and learning difficulties; and the like. Scholars are tasked with preparing 6 relatively self-contained instructional modules and creating a syllabus, PowerPoint slides, directions for course activities, and course readings. Two of these modules are presented as webinars. Each course provides an overview of the characteristics of co-occurring learning and behavioral difficulties as well as approaches to intervention and assessment. Scholars were guided in their course construction by experts in their chosen areas of co-occurring learning and/or behavior disorders and their intersection.


Below are links to summaries of the fully developed courses from NCLII-2 Cohort 1 Scholars. For access to a complete set of materials for a particular course, please email a request to nclii@vanderbilt.edu. Please note that access to the materials is intended for university faculty as well as school and district-level administrators and trainers.


Below are links to summaries of the fully developed courses from NCLII-1 (2014-2019). For these courses, Scholars prepare a Masters-level university course focused on intensive intervention. Scholars were tasked with preparing at least 14 weeks of instruction and creating a syllabus, PowerPoint slides, and directions for course activities; organizing course readings, preparing assessments, and developing a case study to be used in their course. Each case study provides a detailed example of at least one teacher and students involved in the DBI process.
