CREATING SCHOOL CULTURES WHERE ALL STUDENTS THRIVE--
Developing Behavior Intervention Plans:  Fusing Value and Practices

Date: Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Time: 3:30 - 4:30 PM EST

Description: Developing behavior intervention plans that will be accepted by teachers and implemented with fidelity can be challenging. This session will describe a research-supported functional behavior assessment and behavior intervention plan process (FBA/BIP) that is standardized and collaborative, taking into account the values and contextual fit of the plan with all team members. The process, Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR), is a multi-step FBA/BIP model that has been subjected to two randomized controlled trials, one examining its effectiveness with students in grades K-8 and another examining its impact on Pre-K students. The process has been implemented in authentic school settings and outcome data indicate that PTR significantly improves student behavior, social skills, and academic engagement compared to students who receive typical behavior supports. Teachers implement the interventions with 80% or higher fidelity and rate the process as highly acceptable and effective. The presentation will provide an overview of the process, description of the administrator's role and a discussion of the components that enhance the effectiveness of the PTR process.

The Logic of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support and Behavioral Instruction
