11 Comprehensive, Integrated, Three-Tier Model of Prevention (Lane, Kalberg, & Menzies, 2009) Goal: Reduce HarmSpecialized Individual Systemsfor Students with High-Risk≈Goal: Reverse HarmSpecialized Group Systemsfor Students At-RiskTertiary Prevention (Tier 3)≈Secondary Prevention (Tier 2)Goal: Prevent HarmSchool/Classroom-Wide Systems for All Students, Staff, & SettingsPBIS FrameworkYou have probably seen many triangles to represent similar frameworks – common in medicine and business, not to mention education. Ask – Who is familiar with RTI? Maybe seen a PBIS triangle. Here is a comprehensive triangle that shows us a model of prevention that includes academics, behavior, and social skills – these pieces are not separate. They fall under the same framework and each affects the other. When you look at this triangle, don’t think about each color being separate – think of them as layered. Green goes all the way from top to bottom – all students receive; the yellow is layered on top and goes all the way to the top (student receiving tier 2 interventions still receive Tier 1); same for the red (students receiving tier 3 interventions get interventions at all tiers). The tiers are fluid, students may need supports at different tiers for different things, and these needs can change. Important to label the intervention and not the student.Positive Action;Social Skills Improvement System≈Primary Prevention (Tier 1)AcademicBehavioralSocial
12 Stages of Implementation FocusStageDescriptionExploration/AdoptionDecision regarding commitment to adopting the program/practices and supporting successful implementation.InstallationSet up infrastructure so that successful implementation can take place and be supported. Establish team and data systems, conduct audit, develop plan.Initial ImplementationTry out the practices, work out details, learn and improve before expanding to other contexts.ElaborationExpand the program/practices to other locations, individuals, times- adjust from learning in initial implementation.Continuous Improvement/RegenerationMake it easier, more efficient. Embed within current practices.Should we do it!Work to do it right!Work to do it better!

18 Turn and TalkHow does your district’s training plan match the concepts outlined?How does your district’s training plan differ from the concepts outlined?
19 Using data to connect students with Tier 2 and 3 supports How can information from behavioral and academic screening tools be used to support students?
20 Behavior Screening Tools Serve as a screening practice for identifying students who may require additional supports.Early Screening Project (ESP; Walker, Severson, & Feil,1994)Social Skills Improvement System: Performance Screening Guide (SSiS; Elliott & Gresham, 2007)BASC2 Behavioral and Emotional Screening System (BESS; Kamphaus & Reynolds, 2007)Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ; Goodman, 1997)Student Risk Screening Scale (SRSS; Drummond,1994)Systematic Screener for Behavior Disorders (SSBD; Walker & Severson, 1992)

22 What is the SRSS? (SRSS; Drummond, 1994) The SRSS is 7-item mass screener used to identify students who are at risk for antisocial behavior.Teachers evaluate each student on the following items- Steal -Low Academic Achievement- Lie, Cheat, Sneak -Negative Attitude- Behavior Problems -Aggressive Behavior- Peer RejectionStudent Risk is divided into 3 categoriesLow 0 – 3Moderate 4 – 8High 9 +(SRSS; Drummond, 1994)22
23 SRSS Data Over Time Fall Comparison INCREDIBLE!PBS –That’s the ticket!SRSS Data Over Time Fall Comparisonn = 3n = 30n = 444Percentage of StudentsThese numbers are based on the total number of students screened. 6 students were not screened. (Fall 2008)
24 Questions to Consider Before Instituting Behavior Screenings as Part of Regular School Practices? When to do them?Who should prepare them?Who should administer them?Who completes them?Who should score them?When and how should the results be shared?What are our district policies regarding systematic screenings?What researched based interventions are available to students at possible risks?Does “them” refer to screeners or interventions??24

In the foundation part-These are the subscales of the BAT. You will see it starts at tier 1 and then goes to tier 3. – the continuum.A foundational piece is that there is a systematic process to identify students at the tier 2/3 levelTaken from the BAT rubric- this will be a process that your pbis facilitator will support you through the year as well as the November session for the “how to use screening data”.

40 Possible involvement opportunities based on your child’s level of support
41 How might your district plan ensure cultural competence and engaging families as part of building training and coaching capacity for Tier 2/3?
42 Coaching Capacity Coaching network that establishes & sustains SWPBS Individuals for coaching & facilitation supports at least monthly with each emerging school teams (in training & not at implementation criteria), & at least quarterly with established teamsCoaching functions for internal (school level) & external (district/regional level) coaching.

44 Lessons Learned from Schools to Inform District Planning Tier 2/3 Universals implemented with fidelity are important to support Tier 2…as well as Tier 3Behavior Expertise for higher level Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions. Look for other resources to implement lower level Tier 2 interventions such as CICOAssess current practices … which teams can be combined? What teams can naturally incorporate Tier 3 responsibilities?Students who are receiving Tier 3 interventions should also have access to Tier 1 and Tier 2 Tier 2
45 Lessons Learned From District Leadership Teams Districts are building coaching capacity with existing resourcesDevelopment of a Tier 2/3 sub-committee at the district level is essential for planningRestructuring and allocation of resources for advanced supportsCollaboration and maximizing resources between general education and special educationDistrict Leadership Teams benefit from cabinet leadershipAnalyzing visual data at the district level is essential to support planning
46 Turn and TalkHow does your district’s coaching content match the concepts outlined?How does your district’s coaching content differ from the concepts outlined?
47 Evaluation CapacityAn evaluation process & schedule for assessing (a) extent to which teams are using SWPBS (b) impact of SW PBS on student outcomes, & (c) extent to which the leadership team’s action plan is implementedSchool-based data information systems (e.g., data collection tools& evaluation processes)District &/or state level procedures & supports for system level evaluationDissemination of annual report of implementation integrity & outcomesAt least quarterly dissemination, celebration, and acknowledgement of outcomes and accomplishments.
48 Social Validity for an Intervention PBIS: Tier 2/3 Systems TeamSocial Validity for an InterventionObtaining participants’ (Teachers, Students, Families) perceptions of the goals, procedures and outcomes of the intervention to ensure they can comfortably support implementation.Lane, Kathleen Lynne, Menzies, Holly M., Bruhn, Allis L., and Crnobori, M. Managing Challenging Behaviors in Schools: Research-Based Strategies that Work. The Guilford Press, 2011.SSD PBIS, 2011
49 Social ValiditySocial Significance – will this intervention improve the student’s quality of life? GOALSocial acceptability –Do all agree that the intervention is necessary, appropriate, supports positive outcomes, minimally disruptive and worth the effort to attain the goal? PROCEDURESSocial importance –Does this intervention have the potential to produce socially important OUTCOMES?Questions page 100 eg.: Student doesn’t grasp foundational mathT – recognizes negative academic consequenceP – notices that their child can’t count $ at the storeS – embarrassed about making mistakes in front of peerseg.: parent works for 3 hours/night on math drillsImproved decoding skillsIncreased time spent readingAcquiring additional knowledge and an increased appreciation for literatureLane, Kathleen Lynne, and Beebe-Frankenberger, M. School-Based Interventions: The Tools you Need to Succeed. Pearson Education, Inc., 2004.
50 With Whom Do We Assess Social Validity? PBIS: Tier 2/3 Systems TeamWith Whom Do We Assess Social Validity?Teachers- have view that intervention is socially valid more likely that intervention steps are implemented as designedParent- provide vital information about how an intervention can benefit or impede their childStudent- helps to measure buy-in of intervention and promotes student voiceSurface with whom? And then showSSD PBIS, 2011
51 PBIS: Tier 2/3 Systems Team StatementStronglyDisagreeSlightlySlightly AgreeAgree1234561. CICO is an acceptable intervention for our school.2. CICO is appropriate to meet the selected students behavioral needs.3. CICO will help produce the desired outcomes for students.4. CICO will be easy to implement. Collins, 2010, Adapted from SCHOOL-BASED INTERVENTIONS The tools You Need to Succeed. Kathleen Lynne Lane and Margaret Beebe-Frankenberger. Copyright 2--4 Pearson Education, Inc.Pre- Social ValidityThis an example we provided to schools just starting implementation of PBIS. So you can see that the survey is on a likert scale and the questions are designed around the significance, acceptable, and importance.More information will come in depth tomorrow.SSD PBIS, 2011
52 Treatment IntegrityDefinition: The degree to which intervention procedures are implemented as intendedFailure to implement intervention with integrity threatens internal and external validity of treatmentInternal: how well the intervention worked in the current situationExternal: how well the intervention might work in other situationsTreatment fidelity is often assumed, rather than assessedIf behavior changes do not result after a given intervention, and integrity was not monitored, it is difficult to determine if failure was due to an ineffective treatment, or an effective treatment plan was implemented with poor fidelity
53 Factors Related to Treatment Fidelity Complexity of the interventionTactics are consistent acceptable for stakeholdersImplementation time requiredMaterials and resources requiredPerceived and actual effectiveness
54 Assessing Treatment Fidelity Direct Systematic ObservationSelf-reportingRating ScalesPermanent Product
55 Treatment IntegrityMonitor the extent to which interventions are implemented as planned, so that the school staff can be confident that the improvements they see are a result of the intervention (treatment integrity; Gresham, 1989).When intended results do not occur, is it due to insufficient implementation or low treatment integrity?Are we implementing the intervention as designed?
