EBI Training Webinars

The National Center for Intensive Interventions is in the process of developing a series of trainings to help schools use EBI in an effect manner.  These trainings focus on the process of data based individualization which is the NCII title for a data driven problem solving model.  Many of the people who contribute to the EBI Network are also involved in the NCII.
