Identifying problem behaviors comes naturally to most teachers. Responding to such behaviors with strategies designed to decrease reoccurrences requires the development of knowledge and skills. Universal SW-PBS requires strategies for responding to inappropriate behavior. Explore various strategies for responding to challenging behaviors and develop protocols to help teachers build the knowledge and skills necessary to implement with fidelity.

Tier 3 – Application

Learn how to organize Tier 3 documentation using the Tier 3 student file checklist to keep all information up to date as well as a fidelity measure to ensure the behavior intervention plan (BIP) your team develops is implemented as intended.
