Learn how to implement strategic (Tier 2) interventions to help students with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges to decrease inappropriate behavior while increasing self-management skills. Using evidence-based principles addressing skill, motivation, and self-control deficits, seven types of challenging students will be described with specific interventions to address their needs. Through a practical, hands-on discussion supported by videotaped vignettes, participants will leave with a working knowledge of how and when to use up to 10 teacher-friendly, field-tested Tier 2 interventions, and how to fit them into a school-wide positive behavioral support system. Tier 3 services, supports, and interventions will also be addressed.
