Data-Based Individualization (DBI)

Data-Based Individualization (DBI) is a systematic method for using data to determine when and how to provide more intensive intervention. Throughout the DBI process, we use progress-monitoring data to evaluate a student’s response to intervention, moving to the next component as needed.
