10 Who receives Tier 2? Standard methods are not working Time-out's often escalate to office visitsDisruption soon begins againIncidences of disruption not reducedTypically standard methods don't work for students who:Lack the cognitive resources to shift gears or exert their own controlsEngage in power strugglesThis is often difficult to determine. Safest to assume the first if you can't tell.
11 Intro to Tier 2 ExerciseThink of a student who hasn't responded well to a Tier 1 intervention.Are they engaged in power struggles?Do they lack a skill necessary to regain their own controls?
12 Power struggles They have a need to gain control Often originates from insecurity about their ability to succeed.Feelings of mistrust towards authorityGuidelines to help them rediscover a constructive use of power.Structure in elements of choiceBuild trust that you can help them succeed and help meet their needs.Have a visible web of communication
13 Strategies for coping with power struggles Time out place/activityBargaining
14 Break placeDiscuss classroom management plan with student but structure in some choice.Where would you like to go when you're having time out (regaining control/listening wall, etc...)What would you like to do there until you're ready to re-join the class?
15 Bargaining Guidelines Steps: Know what you want Be specific about your bottom lineEstablish good mood and sense of humour.Steps:Name/state problemEmphasize choiceBargainSeal the deal
16 Name the problem In a private meeting with the student notice: In specific termsUsing “I statements”In objective mannerBriefly“When I ask people to come quickly to group, I notice that you go in slow motion”“I notice that you make faces and whisper when some people are presenting in the group.”
17 Emphasize student choice State clear expectations and limits but recognize that the student chooses how he/she works on them.“I want you to enjoy being in the group but I can't force you to do that.”“I know you have a lot to share with us and that you could contribute a lot to our class, but that's your decision to make. However, I cannot let you hurt others.”
18 Bargaining State clearly what you want and provide 2- 3 examples. “I want to see you use your serious thinking in class. That means you ask good questions in math group, you write full page compositions during writing, and you help solve problems during class work.”Help them bargain by providing some possible examples.“Could it be that you would like extra time to read or work on the computer?”“Could it be that you would like an extra reminder or signal when you start to get silly?”
19 Seal the dealCan end with a handshake, smile, or written signed contractMake sure that the language is specific. What, specifically does the student have to do? What specifically does the teacher have to do?Continue to implement consequences.
20 Behavioural Skill Deficits Help teach the skillAdapt the environment
21 Examples of skill instruction Group social skills instructionEnhancing listening and anger managementStating goals in positive terms (i.e. Keep hands to myself)Cueing procedure (evaluate yourself and group members at 5-min intervals)Recognition for meeting goals
22 Types of Tier 2 Interventions ADHD (The Journey)Learn:Organizational skillsstrategies to help them pay attention when faced with distractionsTo identify cues that lead to socially desirable behaviourcognitive behavioural techniques to manoeuvre around obstacles to learningself-regulation
23 Types of Tier 2 Interventions The Challenging Horizons programInterpersonal skills training (communication and listening skills)Study skills trainingOrganizational skillsKids TogetherListeningOrganizationSelf-monitoringImpulse controlProblem solving
24 Overview of Tier 2 interventions (1) Agree on problem,(2) Develop explicit steps for the student to follow (i.e., put on a cue card, ring, poster)(3) Model steps,(4) Cue student,(5) Student initiates steps,(6) Student monitors their performance
25 Tier 2 exerciseConsider the student you thought of that didn't respond to Tier 1 intervention. Think of a Tier 2 strategy that might be useful for your student?Are they engaged in a power struggle? If so, could you structure in choice?Do they need to learn specific skills? If so, which ones?
26 Progress monitoring Checklists Rating scales Classroom observations i.e., Student is prepared for work each period Yes ______ No ______Rating scalesi.e., Student is prepared for work each period: Almost always, frequently, often, somewhat often, sometimes, almost never, neverClassroom observationsi.e., Student has received ____ detentions, lates, time-outs, etc.
27 Progress monitoring exercise Design a method to monitor the progress of your studentChecklist?Rating scale?Classroom observations?Progress monitoring in Tier 2 shouldn't be too time intensive for the teacher
28 Tier 3: Behavioural intervention If student has not made sufficient progress during your progress monitoring for Tier 2 move to Tier 3Tier 3: Step#1Consult with special education teamConduct a functional behavioural assessment
29 Functional Behaviour Analysis Purpose: To determine why the student is behaving in the way that they are.Identify the problemGather informationIndirect assessmentDirect observationAnalyze A-B-C (antecedent, behaviour, consequence)Generate hypotheses regarding the function/purpose of the behaviourTest hypotheses by manipulating the variables believed to trigger the behaviour and/or the possible consequencesDevelop behaviour management planProgress monitor
30 Functional Behaviour Analysis Exercise Either think about or create a case study of a student who has not improved with Tier 2 intervention.What is the target behaviour that is causing the problem.
31 Step 1: Identifying the Problem Pinpoint the behaviour causing learning or discipline problemsIdentify and define the behaviour in specific terms (i.e., “During outside play and/or free time with classmates, Marco uses inappropriate language.”)
32 Case Study: Identifying the Problem Define these problems in more specific termsDeWayne is disruptive.Finley is disrespectful.Kendra is slow.
33 ExerciseDefine the target behaviour of your case study in specific terms
34 Skill deficit or behavioural issue? Is there evidence to suggest that the student does not know how to perform the skill and therefore cannot?Does the student understand the behavioural expectations for the situation?
35 Step 2: Gather Information Indirect AssessmentInterviews with teachers and other adults who have direct contact with the student and the studentChecklistsi.e., Student is prepared for work each period Yes ______ No ______Rating scalesi.e., Student is prepared for work each period: Almost always, frequently, often, somewhat often, sometimes, almost never, neverEmphasize the following:COPYRIGHT: This information is copyright free.

36 Indirect Assessment: Important Interview Questions In what settings do you observe the behavior?Are there any settings where the behavior does not occur?Who is present when the behavior occurs?What activities or interactions take place just prior to the behavior?What usually happens immediately after the behavior?
37 Step 2: Gather information Direct observation: teacher notes how often a target behaviour occursAnecdotal recording: Teacher observes the student in a particular setting and writes down everything that occurs in that setting9:30 AM Language Arts – Micah enters the classroom and walks around the room twice, then sits in his chair. He looks out of the window.9:32 AM Micah speaks out: Teacher can I go to the office? Teacher responds: Micah, get your workbook out and turn to page 56.9:33 AM Micah gets workbook out and begins to look at the pictures on several of the pages. Continues for quite some time....
38 Step 2: Gather information Event recordingThe teacher marks or tallies the number of times a specific behaviour occurs.Time samplingThe teacher marks or tallies the number of times a specific behaviour occurs for a specific time period (2 or 5 min.) various times throughout the day.Interval recordingTeacher notes whether a target behaviour is occurring or not occurring during consecutive intervals
39 Step 2: Gather information Duration recordingRecording the length of time that a student engages in a target behaviourLatency recordingRecording the time elapsed between a stimulus (i.e., directive) and response (i.e., following directive)Inter-response timeRecording the length of time between behaviours or responses
40 Exercise What are some ways you would gather information? Indirect assessmentInterviews, checklists, rating scalesDirect observationsEvent recording, time sampling, interval recording, duration recording, latency recording, inter-response time
41 Step 3: Analyze information to identify function of behaviour Setting eventsEvents that occur in another setting prior to the target behaviour (i.e., argument with friends)AntecedentsWhat happened prior to the behaviour that resulted in the behaviourBehaviourSpecific and objectiveConsequenceWhat followed as a result of the behaviour

47 Fundamental Rule“You should not propose to reduce a problem behaviour without also identifying alternative, desired behaviours the person should perform instead of problem behaviour” (O’Neill et al., 1997, p. 71).

49 ExerciseFor every behaviour listed in your anecdotal recording identify the:SettingAntecedentBehaviourConsequenceList a alternative positive behaviour for each behaviour you identified.
50 Step 4: Generate hypotheses Generate hypotheses regarding function of behaviourConsider setting events, antecedents, and consequencesExercise: Generate hypotheses regarding the function of behaviour for your case studyExample: Daryl calls out during instruction. A functional behavioural assessment might reveal the function of the behaviour is to gain attention (i.e., verbal approval of classmates), avoid instruction (i.e., difficult assignment), seek excitement (i.e., external stimulation), or both to gain attention and avoid a low-interest subject.
51 Step 5: Test hypothesesDevelop a plan to test the hypotheses you've generated by manipulating:Setting eventAntecedentConsequence
52 Step 6: Make & Implement Behaviour Intervention Plan Manipulate the setting events, antecedents, and/or consequences of the behaviourTeach more acceptable replacement behaviours that serve the same function as the inappropriate behaviourImplement changes in curriculum and instructional strategiesModify the physical environment.
53 Step 7: Monitor progress and adjust plan accordingly Behaviour Intervention Plans must be monitored and data collected and recorded on a regular basis.Can use:Indirect assessmentInterviews, checklists, rating scalesDirect assessmentAnecdotal recording, event recording, time sampling, interval recording, duration recording, latency recording, inter- response timeModify plan if neededContinue plan if warranted and develop phase out program as appropriate
