The fifth and final part introduces participants to the intensive intervention framework that is individualized, more intense, substantively different in content AND pedagogy, and composed of more frequent and precise progress monitoring. Presentation and activities allow participants to consider how to intensify reading interventions by increasing time, changing the learning environment, combining cognitive processing strategies with academic learning and modifying the delivery of instruction.

Participants are also introduced to a DBI approach to design and implement intensive reading interventions that accommodate the individual needs of non-responding students. Application of DBI is presented using a case study of a second grader who may be in need of more intensive intervention, and concludes with strategies for examining the impact of intensive reading interventions.
