Tier 1 or Universal SW-PBS is comprised of Seven Essential Components which are individually research based. When the Seven Essential Components are used collectively the process is termed Tier 1 SW-PBS, which is also a research based intervention. The Seven Essential Components are applicable to classroom as well as non-classroom settings throughout all school buildings. Embedded within the Seven Essential Components are culturally responsive practices and family and community involvement.
Missouri SW-PBS has developed and refined a Missouri SW-PBS Tier 1 Team Workbook 2013-2014. This workbook provides in-depth information and applicable resources across each of the essential components in a single chapter for each. The workbook also provides a chapter of information and resources for the 8 Classroom Practices that are critical to effective classroom positive behavior support.
