Title

A Function-Based Thinking Approach to Multi-Tiered Systems of Support

Kaye Otten, Licensed Behavior Analyst/Adjunct Professor, University of Central Missouri

Tier 1, 2, 3– Foundation

Descriptor

Students are often reinforced by the very things that are commonly used as consequences for problem behavior. Function-based thinking empowers all educators to provide behavior support more effectively to every student. This method considers why problem behaviors occur throughout all tiers of Positive Behavior Intervention and Support to guide responses rather than relying on traditional forms of discipline.

Incorporating Self-Regulation in BIPs

Heather L. Hatton, Assistant Research Professor, MU Center for SW-PBS

Tier 3 – Enrichment

Descriptor

Do you want to take your Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs) to the next level? In this session, you will learn how to use the principles of motivation to teach students to regulate their own behavior. We will examine the critical features of BIPs through the lens of self-determination theory. Using case studies, we will decide when externally delivered reinforcers are appropriate and how to transition from externally delivered reinforcers to self-reinforcement and naturally occurring reinforcement.

Data Rich, Action Poor – How to Make Systems and Data Work for You!
