The American Institutes for Research has received a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs to establish the National Center for Students with Disabilities Who Require Intensive Intervention.
This center is designed to help state and local educational agencies to support schools and educators implementing intensive intervention—composed of evidence-based practices—for students with disabilities who have persistent learning or behavior difficulties.
The center will focus on supporting efforts to help children who are intellectually capable of succeeding but have experienced barriers to performing well academically, rather than on those with the most significant cognitive disabilities. These students have been identified as needing intensive intervention to succeed in school and be prepared for postsecondary opportunities.
The Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for Research is a nonprofit behavioral and social science research and evaluation organization. It collaborates with federal, state and local policymakers, agencies and practitioners in the U.S. and abroad in areas such as student assessment, research and evaluation, and policy, practice and systems change.
