This webinar challenges current thinking about how to set appropriately ambitious and measurable behavioral goals in light of the 2017 Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District decision by the United States Supreme Court. Dr. Teri A. Marx from the National Center on Intensive Intervention and the PROGRESS Center, as well as Dr. Faith G. Miller from the University of Minnesota—Twin Cities, share how to set ambitious behavioral goals for students by using a valid, reliable progress monitoring measure, and how to write measurable and realistic goals focused on the replacement behavior. This webinar is a companion to the Strategies for Setting Data-Driven Behavioral Individualized Education Program Goals Guide.
This training module, Using the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity to Select, Design, and Intensify Intervention, introduces the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity and describes how it supports the DBI process by helping provide explicit guidance on how to select and evaluate validated intervention programs to best meet students’ needs and intensify or adapt those interventions when students or groups of students do not adequately respond. At the end of the training participants will be able to:
The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of behavioral progress monitoring and goal setting to inform data-driven decision making within tiered support models and individualized education programs (IEPs).
NCII, through a collaboration with the University of Connecticut, developed a set of course content focused on developing educators’ skills in designing and delivering behavior support in intensive intervention. This content is designed to support faculty and professional development providers with instructing pre-service and in-service educators who are developing and/or refining their implementation of behavior support in intensive intervention.
This module identifies Tier II and Tier III interventions for students at risk and high risk for behavioral challenges. By the end of this module you should be able to: Describe the decision-making process to indicate Tier II is appropriate Identify critical features of Tier II Discuss how to modify Tier II interventions to meet the needs of more students Highlight critical elements of a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) Choose a desired and replacement behavior Complete a Competing Pathway Model Begin to identify strategies to make the problem behavior irrelevant, inefficient, and ineffective
This module describes how to use data (Module 6) to inform decision making in the classroom. How do you know you are choosing the right interventions, and implementing with the right intensity, to influence a change in student behavior? By the end of this module you should be able to: Describe why we use data for decision making Determine if core features of classroom management practices are in place with fidelity Determine if all individuals in your classroom are achieving desired outcomes Develop an action plan to enhance or intensify support as needed
This module discusses how to define, measure and monitor behavior. By the end of the module you should be able to: Select an appropriate target behavior Write an operational definition for a target behavior Identify relevant dimensions of behavior Choose a measurement system based on relevant dimensions of behavior Use graphing conventions to create meaningful visual displays of data
This module discusses consequence strategies to increase behavior. More specifically, how do you encourage more of the desired behavior? This module introduces a variety of different strategies to do this. By the end of this module you should be able to: Describe consequence strategies to increase behavior Establish a continuum of strategies to acknowledge appropriate behavior Appropriately adjust use of reinforcement
This module discusses consequence strategies to decrease behavior. By the end of the module you should be able to: Describe consequence strategies to decrease behavior Establish a continuum of strategies to respond to inappropriate behavior
This module applies behavioral theory to strategy to use in the classroom. The focus is on antecedents and instructional strategies. This module should be viewed once the basic behavioral terms have been learned. By the end of this module you should be able to: Maximize structure in the classroom Post, teach, prompt, review, monitor and reinforce a small number of positively stated expectations Actively engage students in observable ways
