What is School-wide Positive Behavior Support? School-wide PBIS: A systems approach for establishing the social culture and individualized behavioral supports needed for schools to achieve both social and academic success for all students. Evidence-based features of SW-PBIS Prevention Define and teach positive social expectations Acknowledge positive behavior Arrange consistent consequences for problem behavior On-going collection and use of data for decision-making Continuum of intensive, individual interventions. Administrative leadership – Team-based implementation (Systems that support effective practices)
Establishing a Social Culture Common Vision/Values Common Language Common Experience MEMBERSHIP
SYSTEMS PRACTICES DATA Supporting Staff Behavior Supporting Student Behavior OUTCOMES Supporting Social Competence, Academic Achievement and Safety Supporting Decision Making School-wide PBS
Primary Prevention: School-/Classroom- Wide Systems for All Students, Staff, & Settings Secondary Prevention: Specialized Group Systems for Students with At-Risk Behavior Tertiary Prevention: Specialized Individualized Systems for Students with High-Risk Behavior ~80% of Students ~15% ~5% SCHOOL-WIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT
Individual Student Supports Individual supports are more effective when implemented within integrated, school-wide systems of prevention.

Wraparound “Wraparound is both a philosophy of care and a defined process for developing a plan of care for an individual youth and his/her family (Burns & Goldman, 1999). Wraparound supports students and their families by proactively organizing and blending natural supports, interagency services, PBS, and academic interventions as needed.” Eber et al., 2009
Wraparound 10 guiding principles Strength-based family leadership Team based Flexible funding/services Individualized Perseverance Outcome focused Community based Culturally competent Natural supports Collaborative
Wraparound The wraparound process can be described as one in which the team: ◦ Creates, implements and monitors an individualized plan using a collaborative process driven by the perspective of the family. ◦ Develops a plan that includes a mix of professional supports, natural supports and community supports. ◦ Bases the plan on the strengths and culture of the youth and their family; and ◦ Ensures that the process is driven by the needs of the family rather than the services that are available or reimbursable. VanDenBerg, Burns, & Buchard, 2008
Wraparound The wraparound process, and the plan itself, is designed to be culturally competent, strengths based, and organized around family members’ own perceptions of needs, goals, and likelihood of success of specific strategies.
Wraparound with PBIS Illinois: Lucille Eber Completing the continuum of schoolwide positive behavior support: Warparound as a tertiary-level intervention. Eber, Hyde, Rose, Breen, McDonald, & Lewandowski, 2009 ◦ School-wide PBS ◦ Targeted Support (Check-in/ Check-out) ◦ Function-based Behavioral Support ◦ Wraparound support Every school has access to wrap-coordinator SIMEO Data system Level of risk at student faces
Issues Building capacity ◦ Defining the Wraparound approach with operational precision ◦ Building measures of fidelity as well as measures of outcome ◦ Developing the organizational models Teams/ Process/ Administrative Support ◦ Professional Knowledge Individuals with skills, experience, knowledge
Summary Wraparound supports SWPBS SWPBS supports wraparound Build integrated support structure Knowledge about student (personal, physical, emotional) Knowledge about context Immediate context Social/ family/ cultural context Knowledge about behavioral theory
