Briana Weiner Illinois Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports National PBIS Leadership Forum October 11, 2013 Chicago, Illinois, Ph.D.
Universal Targeted Intensive All Some Few Continuum of Support for ALL Dec 7, 2007 Students with ASD benefit from supports and interventions at all three tiers At what tier do you include students with ASD in your PBIS implementation?
What we know from PBIS Everything goes better when students know what to expect and what to do
Tier 1 – Universal Key Features Define school wide expectations Teach /Precorrect Model/Practice Acknowledge Reteach Illinois PBIS Network Universal Manual – Version 3.0, 10/2010
Systems at the Tier 1 Level Universal team meets on a regular basis to review referrals and to review: Treatment integrity data Classroom behavior practices Visual support practices Communication practices Social skills practices
Tier 1 Tips and Tweaks Must explicitly teach expectations with examples in all environments using visual supports and hidden curriculum Reinforce expected behaviors – may need to adjust reinforcement Connect cause and effect Include self-regulation supports
Another thing - Generalization cannot be assumed Students with ASD often have trouble generalizing = New room = New activity Different font = Different word PEGYM

Visual Organizer for Kick-off Day Break
Cool Tools – Tips in teaching Make it visual (short video clip & review) Make it literal, model and practice Teach in the natural environment Increase the teaching, reminders and practice opportunities Use posters, gestures to prompt visually, moving toward self-prompting Individualize the reinforcement
When tier 1 isn’t enough… Not a new model Just intensify –Systems –Data –Practices
Students present with at risk behaviors, i.e.; aggression, property destruction, self-injurious behaviors, that place them at risk of a more restrictive placement. Students are not making effective progress with Tier 1 interventions as identified by educational staff and/or parents.
Individualize CICO » Pre-teach cues and rules » “Chosen” mentor » Individualize incentive and reinforcement use special interests weekly menu of rewards add additional CI to increase chancing of “catching them good”

Taylor and Her Fans by Cassie Jones Taylor Swift loves being a star, but sometimes it is difficult for her to be nice to everyone. At the end of a long day in the studio or after a concert, she is often tired and it is difficult for her to be nice to her fans and friends. Taylor has learned that it is important to smile at people she meets and say nice things to everyone, even when she is tired. She has learned that if she can’t say something nice, it is better to just smile and say nothing. She stops and thinks about comments she makes before she says anything. Just like Taylor, it is important for young people to think before they talk. It makes Taylor proud when preteens and teenagers remember to do the following: 1. Think before you say anything. Say it in your head first before you say it out loud. 2. If you can’t think of something nice to say, smile and don’t say anything. 3. You do not have to say every thought that you think out loud.
1. Think before you say anything. Say it in your head first before you say it out loud. 2. If you can’t think of something nice to say, smile and don’t say anything. 3. You do not to say every thought that you think out loud.
Tier 3… Layering Supports As students start with tier 2 interventions and may not be successful, layering additional interventions is important A student could be in CICO, in SAIG, have a FBA/BIP and also be involved in wrap. OR, students could start with wrap, then the team/school would make sure the student had access to lower level interventions as a part of the wrap plan Tier 3 wrap student action plan builds on lower level interventions as a part of the comprehensive wraparound plan
10 Principles of Wraparound 1.Family Voice and Choice 2.Team-Based 3.Natural Supports 4.Collaboration 5.Community-Based NWI standardized the 10 principles in –Revised persistent to unconditional 6.Culturally-Competent 7.Individualized 8.Strengths-Based 9.Unconditional Care 10.Outcome-Based 35 Perfect for students on the spectrum
Value Base Build on strengths to meet needs One family-one plan Increased parent choice Increased family independence Support for youth in context of families Support for families in context of community Unconditional: Never give up P.Miles, 2004
Added Benefit – You will find that LOTS of students will benefit, not just those with ASD
