Positive Behavior Intervention and Support
The Website indicates that PBIS intends to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of schools and other agencies by improving social, emotional and academic outcomes for all students. While there are benefits for students with special needs, there are also benefits for the school as a whole.
PBIS WORLD – http://www.pbisworld.com/
PBIS World is a comprehensive and invaluable resource of forms and information related to MTSS and the implementation of a PBIS strategy for classrooms and schools. I encourage people to spend some time exploring the site and learning how to navigate through the materials available for the three tiers of support.
Responsive Classroom – https://www.responsiveclassroom.org/
Responsive Classroom is an evidence-based approach to education that focuses on the strong relationship between academic success and social-emotional learning (SEL). The Responsive Classroom website provides links to training, information, and resources for implementing the strategy in the school and classroom. While primarily employed with younger students, middle level learners also can benefit from the structure and practices of Responsive Classroom.
