4 Expectations Be Responsible Be Respectful Be Kind Return promptly from breaksBe an active participantBe RespectfulTurn off cell phone ringersListen attentively to othersBe KindParticipate in activitiesListen and respond appropriately to others’ ideasParticipant Expectations and RulesTo set the stage and model what we want to teach, we have developed a list of expectations and rules for the participants.These expectations and rules will help the institute run more smoothly.Explain the Positive Feedback System you will use throughout the training.Trainers have multiple systems for reinforcement. Decide which will be the best fit for you – remember that we want to model what we are instructing. Some options:Divide the institute participants in half to form Team A and Team B (teams may select more clever names). Each team will have a container where tickets earned will be placed when the trainer recognizes that participants are following the rules and expectations. The team with the most tickets will earn reinforcers (chocolate, longer breaks, etc).Individual (or school team) lottery tickets with drawings for door prizes.School teams work to earn points that are collected over the course of several trainings (best if short span of time).
5 Attention Signal Trainer will raise his/her hand Participants will raise their hand and wait quietlyAttention Signal: used at all PBIS functions in NCThese are the directions for the signal that will be used to gain audience attention throughout the training.Show the slide.Practice by asking everyone to turn to their neighbor and say, “good morning” and tell them how happy you are to be here today.After about 15 seconds, raise your hand and say, “Attention here.” Time how long it takes all participants to get quiet.Give a ticket to the team or individual who responded to the attention signal first.
6 Welcome to PBIS Module 3 Training! Prepare a poster showing successes and challenges from Universal and Secondary Implementation.Use data from your most recent Implementation Inventory, SET, etc.
7 Training Objectives Participants will be able to: Evaluate implementation of school-wide and secondary PBISCreate a system for receiving and processing individual student referralsUse data to:Identify individual students needing interventionDevelop and evaluate interventions to address problem behaviorDetermine effectiveness of tertiary systemsInstitute ObjectivesThese objectives apply to module 3 of the PBIS Training.
8 Module 3 Accomplishments and Products At the end of these two days, teams are expected to have:Conceptualized tertiary systems for your settingDiscussed implementation of teacher-led practicesReviewed data collection & assessment for individual studentsDeveloped action steps for tertiary implementationModule Three OutcomesWe will be giving teams a lot of time to work the next two days.Teams should review data management and small group strategies.Remind the teams that we are well aware that everyone is not at the same place in the process and that is OK! That is expected.Because all the teams are working at their own pace, it is difficult for us to give them a definite list of outcomes, so these outcomes are “general.”The concluding activity tomorrow will be the development of a long-range (3-5 year) action plan

11 PBIS Tertiary Support is: A systems approach to individualized intervention and support development.A process that all staff in your school will use to support individual students.A teacher-led process that utilizes a functional approach to addressing behaviorPBIS Module 3 is NOT FBA training. This process is teacher-led in order to provide comprehensive tertiary supports in the whole school for individual students struggling with behavioral challenges.

So how do we accomplish this task? We have historically looked to specific practices, programs or people to meet the needs of our students. This means that we might need multiple things to meet the multiple needs of our students. Instead, we should be focusing on a process that can be used by any school, no matter what the needs of their individual students. By adopting a problem-solving approach, (CLICK) schools can effectively conduct needs assessments and build in the layers of support that meet their students’ academic and behavior needs. Here in NC, schools are using PBIS as the problem-solving framework that allows them to construct the prevention and intervention needed to address behavior and social skill deficits. You can see some examples of the interventions here. Schools will also need a plan for creating a systematic approach to academic intervention (many schools in NC are implementing Responsiveness to Instruction for this purpose).
13 CONTINUUM OF POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT Tertiary Prevention:SpecializedIndividualizedSystems for Students withHighRisk Behavior~5%Secondary PreventionSpecialized GroupSystems for Students withAtRisk Behavior~15%Primary PreventionSchoolwide andClassroomwide Systemsfor All Students,Staff, & Settings~ 80% of StudentsResourcesPage 6Let’s take a closer look at constructing a continuum of support (Lewis & Sugai, 1999; Sugai etal., 2000; Walker et al., 1996):(CLICK) Primary prevention focuses on preventing the development of new cases of problem behaviors by focusing on all students and staff, across all settings. We expect that primary/school-wide/universal implementation will result in about 80% of students gaining the necessary behavioral and social skills necessary to be successful in school.(CLICK) Secondary prevention focuses on reducing the number of existing cases of problem behaviors by establishing efficient and rapid responses to problem behavior. Secondary prevention is only implemented after the successful implementation of S-W PBS and should result in an additional 15% of students learning necessary skills.(CLICK) Tertiary prevention focuses on reducing the intensity and/or complexity of existing cases of problem behaviors that are resistant to primary and secondary prevention efforts. Once SW and Secondary efforts are in place, tertiary prevention & intervention focuses on the remaining 2-5% of the population continuing to show skill deficits.When all three levels have been successfully implemented (a 3-5 year process) the school will have created a comprehensive system of behavioral support.
14 GOAL: 100% of students achieve at high levelsTier I: Begins with clear goals:What do we expect all students to know, understand and do as a result of our instruction?How will we know if these goals are met?How will we respond when students do not meet the goals with initial instruction?How will we respond when some students have already met the goals?CorePrimary prevention focuses on preventing the development of new cases of problem behaviors by focusing on all students and staff, across all settings.

17 Label behavior…not people UniversalTargetedIntensiveMathScienceSpanishReadingNOTICE GREEN IS FOR “ALL”When we talk about a continuum of supports, we should not be referring to students as “red zone” or “yellow zone” students. We should be mindful that every student has unique strengths and challenges. When we use the pyramid to refer to behaviors that require intervention, we can see that students might have many behaviors that do not require intervention, some behaviors that might require some interventions, and a few behaviors that require intensive support and intervention. We must remember to label behavior, not people.Soc skillsSoc StudiesBasketballLabel behavior…not peopleDec 7, 2007

22 Data Collection Strategies & Tools Problem identification,data collection, and evaluation
23 Clear Definition of Problem Behavior The “Stranger Test”Is the description of the behavior crystal clear?Would a stranger’s description match yours?If a stranger read your description, would they be able to identify the problem behavior?When was the last time you had a “stranger test?” The last time you had substitute.
24 Measurable Descriptors Not MeasurableoppositionalbotheringlazyAs we begin to think about data collection, we need to make sure that we are describing behavior in a way that is measureable and observable-if we can count it – we can collect data on it….*****fighting and swearing can only be said to be measureable if they have been operationally defined at the school leveltalking outrudeinattentiveswearingfightingout of areadefiantcompleting work
25 Data Considerations: Objective Descriptors SubjectiveObjectiveTalking during seatworkDisobedientSeldomRepeatedlyPassing notesBehaviors should also be described objectively, primarily because each person may have different definitions of terms like sometimes and bizarre.Just a with school-wide expectations, we want to make sure that we are consistently talking about the same behaviorsOnce or twice a weekHurrying through workLeaning back in chairFive times each dayBothering a neighborSometimesContinuouslyEvery ten minutesBizarreTapping pencil on deskTwice each period
26 Data Considerations: Data to Collect How often does the behavior occur?FrequencyHow extreme is it?IntensitySo what data will you need about the behavior?Frequency: How often?# of times/class period – day – week – month – yearIntensity: How extreme?whispering – talking – yelling - screamingthrowing cotton balls – paper – books – chairsDuration: How long?seconds – minutes – hours – dayshalf a class period**continuously? Really? (may feel like it when you’re living with the behavior – but is there anything that we really do CONTINUOUSLY)Context: Where/When/What else is going on?This is the “Everything else that is going on when a problem behavior is occuring…can include not just location and time of day, but also other factors that we don’t always identify. What other students or adults are present? What activity was the student engaged in? ANYTHING happening or present in the environment either right before or during the behavior (when in doubt, write it down)DurationContextHow long does it last?Under what circumstances does it occur?
27 Data Collection Strategies What is already collected?Anecdotal notes by teacherOffice referralsDisciplinary actionsAs we begin to plan for data collection for the individual student, we want to remember our focus on working smarter. So, we would start by looking at the data we already have: anecdotal notes by the student’s teacher(s) & prior office referrals and disciplinary actions. Can we establish the function of the behavior based on this data? If not, we could plan for additional data collection. As we do that, we want to consider which data collection strategies will be easiest to implement and give us the level of information that we need. Probably the least difficult collection method is the use of Checklists, followed by DBR, Observation and Interviews. Just like the levels of FBA, these strategies are arranged in order of least to greatest investment of time and resources. Next, we will discuss each in more detail.

30 DBRs Daily Behavior Report = DBR ResourcesPage 12DBRsDaily Behavior Report = DBRAlso referred to as Direct Behavior RatingThe DBR involves a brief rating of target behavior over a specified period of time on a scale 1-10.For more information and examples:Other Names for DBRHome-School NoteBehavior Report CardDaily Progress ReportGood Behavior NoteCheck-In Check-Out CardPerformance-based behavioral recordingLevel II
31 Characteristics of DBR The DBR involves a brief rating of target behavior over a specified period of timebehavior(s) is specifiedrating of the behavior(s) typically occurs at least dailyobtained information is shared across individuals (e.g., parents, teachers, students)the card is used to monitorthe effects of an interventionas a component of an intervention(Chafouleas, Riley-Tillman & McDougal, 2002)Effective behavioral assessment and intervention procedures in applied settings require the use of empirically-supported yet feasible techniquesTo date, feasible assessment of behavior skills has been focused on ODR data – which may not be sensitive to capture all behaviors of interestTo date, support for feasible, formative assessment of academic skills is available (e.g., CBM) – but attention has not been directed toward social behaviorsStrengthsHighly FlexibleHighly Feasible, Acceptable, and FamiliarMinimal Cost Given Potential Amount and Uses for DataReduced Risk of Reactivity (atypical behavior)Can be used in assessment, intervention, and communicationWeaknessesRater Influence (history)Limited Response FormatLimited Knowledge about Psychometric Adequacy31
32 Potential Uses for the DBR Increase communicationAs a component of an intervention package, particularly in self-managementProvide “quick” assessment of behaviors, especially those not easily captured by other meansMonitor student behavior over timeFlexible60% of teachers surveyed already use DBRs to change student behavior32% to monitor or observe student behavior81% to identify positive behaviors, 77% to identify negative behaviors86% use with individual students, 19% with whole class, 9% with small groups32% use DBRs “routinely” as part of classroom management planIncrease communication (teacher-student, home-school)As a component of an intervention package, particularly in self-managementProvide “quick” assessment of behaviors, especially those not easily captured by other meansMonitor student behavior over timeFlexibleK-12,+ or –1 student or larger grouprange of behaviors(Chafouleas, Riley-Tillman, & Sassu, 2006)32
33 A systematic DBR possesses the following 4 characteristics: 1. The behavior of interest must be operationally defined2. The observations should be conducted under standardized procedures3. The DBR should be used in a specific time, place, and at a predetermined frequency4. The data must be scored and summarized in a consistent mannerEnsure that use is “systematic”Identify and operationally define a behavior of interestUse a system of observation in a specific time and placeScore and summarize the data in a consistent manner(Similar to the criteria that define systematic direct observation (Salvia & Ysseldyke, 2004)Provide checks on integrity and acceptabilityUnderstand correspondence with other data sources33
34 How are DBR data summarized? Data can be quantified, compared, combined, and summarized for summative and formative purposes.For example, DBR data of Susie’s disruptive behavior over the week can be summarized into a statement of average daily or weekly rating (6 out of 9 points) or most likely period of high or low disruption if multiple ratings per day are taken (just before lunch).Since DBR involve rating on some scale, data are summarized relevant to the scale.For example, a simple yes/no checklist can be easily depicted through a bar chart whereas rating information might be plotted on a line graph, with the intervals on the y-axis indicating the DBR scale.34
36 DBR Considerations Measures perception of behavior “3 to 7” not “he is a 7”No absolutes in Social BehaviorRater EffectsIt is important to consider the fact that the DBR measures the teachers’ perception of the behavior, not the actual behavior (ex. Engaged in the behavior 5 times). Further, we are measuring changes in the teachers perception of the behavior as a movement between scores, and not using a score as a description of a student. Remember, in social behavior there are no absolutes, the goals must be defined within a given social context. In addition, who the rater is matters because we are measuring perceptions. Teachers perceptions tend to move consistently once established on the scale of 1-10, however, it is not appropriate to compare one teachers score of 5 to another teachers score of 1. Thus, keep consistency in the rater for the duration of the intervention.
37 Individual Student Data Tracking This is an Individual Student Data Tracking Form. You can use this to collect and summarize individual student data. You will need to enter the goal amount and whether the goal is a percent or the total number of occurrences. The baseline data is entered on the top right side of the form by entering the date and the value for that day. Next, you will be able to enter data for the first phase of intervention on the right side of the document. Then, you can enter notes or descriptions for Phase 1. You can also enter a second phase of data and notes, if you revise the plan or change intervention. The form has embedded formulas to automatically create a graph to summarize your data. A blank copy is included in the supplemental resources.ResourcesPage 13

46 Activity CHANGE Activity: CHANGE Each group is given a small cup of clear water and told that they have 3 minutes to change it to green. They can use any personal items they brought (Contents of purse, pockets, etc) to help.After initial 3 minutes, offer groups a chance to take a random item from grab bag (which should some items that will turn water green (green paint, green food dye, green kool-aid powder, yellow and blue dye) and some that will not (only yellow paint, red cool-aid, etc). Give groups 2 minutes to turn their water green.For final round, tell groups they can share items or can ask for something from another group. Give them 1 minute to complete assignment. Everyone should have green water at the end.Discuss our efforts to turn yellow and red students “green.” We have limited success when we go it alone, slightly better when we apply a random intervention, the best outcome when we work together using proven (research-based, functionally selected interventions) methods in concert with our team. Not the water that is doing something to turn green, but the teachers who are doing something to change the outcome.ALTERNATIVE ACTIVITY: Correy’s activity chewing gum, microwave popcorn, and coal.
48 Tertiary Systems Considerations Commit to:Establishing a team to assess and intervene with students who have serious behavior problemsAllotting adequate time and resources for the teamTraining & planningDesign & implementation of individual supportsTertiary Systems require time and planning. Very often they also require a willingness on the whole staff to try things outside of their comfort zones.Administrative support is critical in the development of a team for intervention, as the team will need to be freed from other duties for an adequate amount of time for training and then to provide support to students and staff
49 Why do we need Tertiary Systems? To make a lasting, positive, change in behaviorTo provide a systematic way to support staff and studentsTo establish practices for children with behavior concernsWe know that all students needs will not be met by Universal and Secondary Support Systems. In order to ensure that we are able to meet the needs of all students, we must establish Tertiary Systems to support more intensive needs of individual students. It’s very uncommon for schools to not have any Tertiary Support Systems, however, many schools do not apply the problem solving process to ensure the practices and systems are operating effectively and have positive outcomes for students.
50 Team Structure Consideration Who?What?When?Where?Why?When thinking about how your team will support Tertiary Implementation, consider who, what, when, where, and why. Imagine that your PBIS team attended Module 1 training and had one ball representing Universal implementation to keep in the air. Next, your team attended Module 2 training, and now you have balls representing Universal and Secondary to keep in the air. Finally, you are now adding a ball representing Tertiary Supports. In order to juggle all of these responsibilities, your team has to consider the most efficient ways to operate.Considering the team members available to take responsibility for coordinating implementation at the tertiary level, identifying what supports your school will offer, when the team will meet and when services will be delivered, where the team will meet and where services will be delivered, and always articulating why the tertiary team is meeting/responding, as well as, why a student needs a particular support will be critical.
51 Most Common Team Structures Problem-Solving Only TeamRtI & PBIS TeamsAccording to a survey completed by 34 administrators of schools implementing RtI (Fall, 2009), the most common team structure is to have only one problem-solving team. When this is the structure, both the pre-referral team and the PBIS team are absorbed into the RtI team (left graphic).The second most common structure is to have two teams, the RtI team, addressing academic issues and the overall RtI process, and the PBIS team addressing behavioral support and the PBIS implementation process. When this is the structure the pre-referral team is absorbed into the RtI team (right).Pre-referral and PBIS absorbed in RtIPre-referral absorbed in RtI

If this is the case, how will you establish communication and build a system of support for teachers. One possible structure would be to keep both the RtI and PBIS team, which will oversee the problem solving process for whole school data and address core instructional issues. The RtI team members will also serve as grade level representatives for academic concerns and PBIS team members will serve as grade level representatives for behavioral concerns.RtI TeamRtI processPBIS TeamSchool-widePBIS processHow will you structure both problem solving teams?
54 Team Responsibilities: Tertiary System Considerations Identify resources and structures develop the tertiary system of supportsAssess studentsDevelop and implement support plansPersonnelFamily InvolvementExternal agency involvement(Child and Family Teams/System of Care)Your team is responsible for creating a tertiary system of supports and facilitating the identification of students needing those supports. You will need to consider the resources (time and materials) needed to establish the system. When establishing systems of support, consider who will need to be included, such as staff members with expertise, stakeholders, or agencies your team can collaborate with to strengthen the supports provided for students with intensive behavioral needs.
55 Team Responsibilities: Implement the Tertiary System Access training and on-going staff development to establish and maintain knowledge of PBIS teamProviding staff development and support to teachers regarding the processSupport teachers with assessment and implementationYour team is also responsible for ensuring that staff receive training on the tertiary support system. First, you will want to ensure that you have accessed the training necessary to build the skills for your PBIS team. You will also need to consider how to continue to increase expertise for all of the staff at your school. In addition, we know that teachers will implement the strategies and plans with greater integrity if your support is offered to them as they attempt to implement these supports systems and practices.
56 Team Responsibilities: Monitor the Tertiary System Review behavioral data and interventions in order to evaluate the effectivenessReviewing Implementation Inventory Tertiary Systems, Data, and Practices to address areas of needYour team will use data to guide implementation. The Implementation Inventory is a tool that we will use throughout this training to help you identify areas that you will need to address with your action plan. In addition, you will need to review student data to determine the effectiveness of the interventions and supports that you offer in your continuum. Data is essential for establishing and maintaining your continuum of supports.

58 Create the System: Working Smarter What does working smarter look like at the individual level? How do we invest our resources wisely?To go back to an old analogy: Historically we have approached inappropriate behavior in schools by waiting until the students started the fire and then running around with buckets of water and trying to put them out. We said that one of the ways PBIS was different was that we are interested in prevention, or in taking the matches out of the hands of the students before they ever have a chance to light a match (also knowing that we can carry more books of matches than buckets of water). To extend that analogy, let’s say we are babysitting our nephew. We know he sometimes carries matches, but have always had ample opportunity to take them before a major problem develops. Today, however, he manages to slip some matches past us and strike one -- what is our response? Do we call the fire department for one burning match? No, we blow the match out and take away the matches (and start asking our nephew to hand over matches regularly). Say we don’t see the burning match and he lights a piece of paper on fire? What if it has a chance to grow to a small fire in the trashcan (Probably you just put the fire out with a fire extinguisher)? What if it catches the curtains on fire? – now do you call the fire department?? In other words, its only when you have exhausted your own resources and ability to put the fire out that you call in the specialists. What would happen if every time someone struck a match you called the fire department? Also, you didn’t hook up the hose to put out the match, right? Or try to blow out the flaming curtains?We want to use the same approach to students whose exhibit problem behavior. We want to use the lowest intensity intervention that will work and we want to exhaust our own ideas before we call in the specialists.Develop a continuum of support within the tertiary level to address all the shades of red
59 Three Important Themes Create systems (not just interventions) to support all studentsIntervene earlier rather than laterEvidence, not opinionInterventions are critical to the tertiary level of support, but without a system to ensure they are delivered efficiently and with fidelity, our tertiary system resources might be over-extended. It is critical that the interventions and practices we offer are research-based and have evidence of their effectiveness. As with most patterns of behavior, intervention early increases the likelihood of successful response.
60 Data Decision Rules To address: Teachers initiating the behavioral support processStudent data initiating the processProgress and goal completion rulesTertiary intervention effectiveness guidelinesYour team will also need to establish, document, and communicate the data decision rules about students eligible for tertiary supports. What guidelines will you provide to outline when a teacher or student would like to initiate a referral for support? How will you communicate the expectations for progress and goal completion? How will you collect data to help you determine if the interventions you are utilizing are effective?
61 Examples Less than 15 Star Tickets earned per week for 2 weeks More than 5 absences in a 30 day period3 or more counseling referrals in a 30 day period6 or more office discipline referralsProgress to 80% completion of homework assignments70% of students receiving this tertiary intervention meet their goals within 8 weeksThese are some examples of different rules that might apply at the tertiary level.

63 Systems for Individual Students Quick, supportive response to teacherUnderstand how behavior is functionally related to the teaching environment (competing pathways)If you have multiple students displaying similar behaviors = system issue not individual student issueSystems for Individual StudentsRemind participants we are still looking at a system’s approach to improving behavior of children with or without disabilities. This will still require a team of some kind, school may choose to utilize existing team, PBIS Team, RtI, and/or IC teamThe PBIS team needs to respond to teachers’ requests for support within 48 hours.Students with chronic challenging behaviors often require more than one adult’s input.If there are multiple students exhibiting similar behaviors, then the school has an issue at the system’s level. There is a mismatch between the system and the students. Examination of data should reveal this.Remind participants they cannot take student’s behavior personally. Suggest videotaping to look for patterns of student behavior.Through examining competing pathways, it can be determined why students engage in a particular behavior. By examining competing pathways, we can get to the “purpose” or “function” the behavior serves.
64 Referral Process How will teachers know who to refer? Data decision ruleProfessional judgmentAfter what process in classroomHow do they refer?FormTo WhomTeachers will need to know the expectation for when to initiate a referral, as well as the process for making a referral.Often teachers have accessed support services by having conversations in the hall. This type of contact might not provide the data and documentation to effectively initiate a referral.Remember that good teachers often will not ask for help; therefore, support must be established for them.
65 Referral Process What happens next? Data collection Case manager Parent/family participationTeam meetingOnce a referral is madeHow will families be included in a way that helps them feel invited to collaborate, not forced or coerced
66 Referral Process Plan Plan written? Good fit for context? Executed by whom? How do you know?Evaluated?Next StepsOnce a referral is made the PBIS team needs to respond to teachers’ requests for support within 48 hours. While a formal meeting might not be able to take place within 48 hours, someone from the team should attempt to contact the teacher and offer some type of immediate assistance, until the plan can be developed and implemented. This will make a significant difference in how teachers will feel about requesting assistance, if they see that the process is timely and supportive of their needs.A plan for addressing the students’ needs will need to be contextually and developmentally appropriate.Always consider how will families be included in a way that helps them feel invited to collaborate, not forced or coerced

This sends the message that this is “our student, our responsibility” and the teacher doesn’t feel he/she is alone. It is a team process with everyone supporting each other.

74 Behavior What is the challenging behavior? What can you observe? What does it look or sound like?Choose onePrioritizeSometimes it can be difficult to focus on one behavior, as many students present a variety of challenging behaviors. It is important to prioritize which behavior is having the most significant impact on the student and select that particular behavior to begin the intervention process.
75 BehaviorThis is an example of a student’s behavior, in which the student demonstrates several challenging behaviors. After some data collection, it is evident that the behavior the student demonstrates most often is leaving his assigned area. Considering the frequency is just one way to prioritize student behaviors. Remember to always address behaviors that are safety issues immediately with a crisis plan if necessary.
76 Setting EventsWhat environmental, personal, situational or daily events impact the behavior?Eating/Sleeping routinesMedical/Physical problemsFamilial and staff interactionsDo not immediately precede problem behaviorSetting events are environmental, personal, situations, or daily events that impact student behavior. They may or may not immediately precede the behavior, but are none-the-less a factor associated with the particular behaviors the student demonstrates.
77 Setting EventsThis is an example of Setting Event data. We can see from this particular graph that having missed the bus or not having breakfast, which may be related issues, are common setting events associated with the behavioral challenges we observe.
78 Antecedent What happens immediately before the behavior? Predicts problem behaviorWhen, Where, With whom, ActivityTime of dayPhysical SettingPeople presentTypes of interactions (demands, directives, etc.)Predictors of the occurrence or non-occurrence of the problem behaviorTypically occur immediately before the problem behaviorWhen, Where, With whom, ActivityTime of dayPhysical SettingPeople presentTypes of interactions (demands, directives, etc.)
79 AntecedentThis is not an exhaustive list of antecedents, rather it is an example of data that can be collected.Often teachers will say “There is no pattern. The behavior happens all the time. It’s unpredictable.” It is important to know that it is extremely rare to see a behavior happen exclusively during one time period or one class or one activity. Rather, we tend to see the teacher is correct, the behavior does happen “all of the time,” however, when we collect the data we can see patterns emerge. Very often we can see one antecedent is more frequently associated with the behavior. While it is not 100% of the time, even accounting for only 20-30% of the time can help us know where to intervene. In this example, which antecedent is most often associated with the problem behavior we observe?
80 Consequence What happens immediately after the behavior? Gives student a reason to repeat the problem behaviorNot related to punishmentWhen we are talking about functional based approaches to behavior, consequences do not refer to punishments that follow behaviors. Rather, they are any particular outcome that happens immediately after the behavior. They are responses that allow the student to access something or avoid something. Even things we might not immediately recognize as a consequence can be enough to encourage a student to continue demonstrating a particular behavior.
81 This is an example of a graph containing the consequences a student experienced after demonstrating problem behavior. While calling a students name might not immediately seem like attention, it might be sufficient attention for that particular student. In this example, when the student demonstrated the behavior the teacher responded by calling the students name, which suggests the student is motivated by attention. Further, we can see the time-out response is relatively low, which suggests that the student is not trying to escape the classroom activities. So when ever you are collecting data about consequences be mindful of what each of the responses is either giving access to or helping a student escape.
82 Function … People behave for a reason - we call this “function” Does he/she get something?Tangibles, attention, stimulation, people, etc.Does he/she avoid or escape something?People, activities, embarrassment, tasks, etc.Behavior communicates needNeed is determined by observing what happens prior to and immediately after behaviorKids engage in behavior for two reasons: to get what they want or avoid what they don’t want.Their behavior is based on their learning history. The behavior has worked in the past.Remember, there is no universal reinforcing or aversive stimulus. What we may find aversive, many find reinforcing, thereby inadvertently reinforcing inappropriate behavior.This is why we MUST observe what happens prior to and immediately after the inappropriate behavior.
83 Only Two Basic Functions For example-Many students use off topic comments/inappropriate language to obtainattention from peers through their reactions and to escape the task at hand.In this example, social reinforcement is obtained from the peers and theadult.Remember reinforcement is positive and negative.NOTE:When control is offered as a possible function- think about what is underlying that perception.Control can be a way:To hide skill deficits; therefore escaping/avoiding a taskTo hide fears around social acceptance; therefore escaping/avoiding a situationFor an individual to assert themselves; therefore gaining/obtaining the attention of peers/adultsSugai, H. (2011). Addressing individual challenging behavior through function-based support (FBA Overview). Retrieved fromSugai, 2011
84 Hypothesis Statements Information about the problem behavior is used to write a hypothesis statement that helps us predict when the problem behavior is likely to occur and the function of that behaviorNow that we have worked through the components of determining the function of the behavior, we need to write a statement that helps us make sense of the data. A hypothesis statement will help us to predict when the problem behavior is likely to occur and will guide our intervention and support efforts.

Burping)to access peer and teacher attention.

When we understand functions we can try to guess what a person is trying to get or avoid. What is Bruno trying to get or avoid?

87 Identifying the function helps: Choose an appropriate interventionWill this intervention meet the functional need?Choose an appropriate replacement behaviorAlternative behavior taught to the studentWhat you want the student to do insteadMust meet functional needIt is not possible to determine function of a student’s challenging behavior simply by describing the behaviorChoose an appropriate interventionConnect the FUNCTION with the interventionAsk: Will this intervention meet the functional need?Ex. If the function of the behavior is to access adult attention:Intervention should prevent access to adult attention for inappropriate behaviorsIntervention should provide access to adult attention for appropriate behaviorsChoose an appropriate replacement behaviorNew or alternative behavior taught to the student as a replacement option for the problem behavior.Key points:It is probably more efficient for the student to engage in the problem behaviorReplacement behavior must allow student access to same functional need but more efficiently

90 Teacher – Led SupportAny individualized behavior support should always begin with a hypothesis based on data about the studentWhen looking at individual student behavioral challenges we must always start with what the data is telling us about the student behavior right now. We do not have to be right, we must have a guess. After we have implemented the plan we will be able to determine if our hypothesis or guess is correct.All teachers in your school need to at a minimum, understand the basics of behavior and how to think about hypothesizing the function of a students behavior.

This chart lists the particular components of each of the 3 problem solving strategies that you will learn about in PBIS Module 3 training (TIPs Problem Solving Worksheet, Competing Behavior Pathways, and ERASE). What you can see is that each of these processes has all 5 components of the problem solving process. The TIPs problem solving worksheet can be used to assist with problem solve data related to the entire level of tertiary supports in the school or at the individual student level, depending upon the data that is available. The key concept is that you have data that allows you to address each of the 5 steps regardless of the practice that you select. The data should also be used to determine when and if more intensive individualized practices should be utilized.

107 Competing Pathways: Identify Replacement Behavior(s) SettingEventsAntecedentsProblemBehaviorMaintainingConsequencesDefine Alternative or Competing BehaviorThe next step in the process is defining acceptable alternative behavior. This is highlighted in the yellow box on the slide.What is the difference between the “desired alternative” and the “acceptable Alternative?”The desired alternative is the behavior that is your ultimate goal. It is the behavior you would see if a miracle happened overnight and when the student came back to school the problem no longer existed.The acceptable alternative(s) are the behaviors that you are teaching as successive approximations of the desired behavior. It is the behavior you are willing to live with until the student masters the new behavior he or she is learning. It may take multiple acceptable alternatives for a student to finally reach the desired alternative.AN EXAMPLE: Jody follows you around your classroom and pokes you, saying your name loudly anytime she needs assistance. If a miracle happened, tomorrow Jody would come in, sit in her seat, raise her hand, and wait for you to recognize her. However, you know that to get Jody to that desired behavior, first you will have to teach her pieces of that behavior: (1) not to poke you as she follows, (2) stay in a masking tape box you tape around her desk while raising her hand and calling your name, (3)sitting in her seat while raising her hand and calling your name, (4) sitting in her seat and raising her hand only….REMEMBER behavior changes in small increments with teaching, practice and coaching.AcceptableAlternativeAcceptableAlternativeAcceptableAlternativeAcceptableAlternativeMaintainingConsequencesDesiredAlternative

124 ERASE: Explain What is the problem? Create an operational definition of behaviorDescribe why the behavior is a problemDetermine if student can engage in appropriate behavior.List what has already been tried.An operational definition of behavior begins with a description of its topography – what exactly does the behavior look like?Dimensions such as frequency, duration, and intensity will also be necessary. For example, the behavior “talks out” may not, by itself, be seen as a major issue for many teachers. However, if it were known that the behavior occurred times per hour, for durations of over 3 hours per episode, or loud enough to be clearly heard from a distance of 200 feet, it is much more likely that the behavior would be treated as a priority issue. This also would help to define why the behavior is considered a problem.Teachers also should be prepared to present evidence of the types of past intervention strategies used, how those strategies were applied, and the outcomes of those strategies.PBIS Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 3
125 ERASE: Reason What is student getting or avoiding? Determine what times, locations, contexts, conditions, etc. tend to predict or precede:problem behaviorappropriate behaviorThis information may be compiled by considering past interactions with the student. The more times a person has interacted with the student, the better information they will be able to provide. When memories alone aren’t sufficient, any available school or classroom data (e.g., office referrals, incident reports, etc.) may be helpful in answering the questions.PBIS Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 3
126 ERASE: Reason Determine what types of events tend to follow behavior? peers, instruction, consequences, etc.after problem behaviorafter appropriate behaviorRemember when considering the antecedents and consequences that the environment consists of all actions, items, and events. The teacher, peers, tasks, instruction, and other subtle conditions are part of the environment and must be considered.
127 ERASE: ReasonMake a guess at the function – why do you think he/she is doing this?access to (persons, objects, attention, etc.)escape or avoid (persons, activities, attention, etc.)Based on the information you’ve gathered, make a guess about what the student is getting or avoiding.
128 ERASE: Appropriate What would you like student to do instead? Determine what times, locations, contexts, conditions, etc. tend to predict or precede:fair pair – incompatible with problem (can’t do at same time)functional – meets the same function as problem behaviorReplacement behaviors are best determined by persons familiar with the environment. The first step in determining an appropriate replacement is to ask, “what do successful students do under these conditions?” This provides an example of a relevant behavior in that environment. When we select behaviors that suit us but are not relevant to the student it is unlikely that the student will use that behavior as a replacement. Similarly, the replacement we choose must be acceptable to us but also must work for the student in terms of meeting his/her needs (i.e., function). Selecting effective replacement behaviors requires consideration of each of these issues.PBIS Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 3
129 ERASE: Support How can you help this happen more often? Determine how the replacement behavior and intervention plan will be taughtRules (what it is and -- when, where, how, and why to use behavior)Examples (modeling and use of naturally occurring examples)Practice (opportunities to practice with teacher feedback)Replacement behaviors must be taught to the student and then teachers must arrange environments to create success opportunities for students – following that up with reinforcement to maintain the behavior. Negative consequences for negative behavior also need to be considered. All strategies considered here must involve thought of what is realistic for school personnel to implement in a consistent manner.PBIS Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 3

135 Activity: Paper Kids Do you have students like this? How do you help? Take a paper cutout of a student. Have the audience name setting events, triggers, antecendents that they frequently see. For each one named, rip off a piece of the paper student.Option: When you rip off the final pieces ask if schools know how to put the pieces back together. Demonstrate positives: showing patience, teaching the student new skills, etc and tape the student back togetherThis is what the behavior charting – especially the manipulation of setting events, triggers, & consequences is all about
136 General Recommendations For Tertiary Practices Keep doing what is already workingAlways look for the smallest change that will produce the largest effectAvoid defining a large number of goalsDo a small number of things wellWhen analyzing data recognize that it will never show 100% --Sometimes you may hear teachers say “it happens all the time” or “it happens everywhere”. That may be accurate but where is the behavior occurring most frequently. Likewise we need to look for the most frequently occurring maintaining consequence also.For example, if a behavior occurs 33% of the time following a teacher direction that is high level of predictability even though there may be other antecedents identified.
137 General Recommendations For Tertiary Practices Do not add something new without also defining what you will stop doing to make the addition possibleWhen it comes to problem behavior nothing is 100%When analyzing data recognize that it will never show 100% --Sometimes you may hear teachers say “it happens all the time” or “it happens everywhere”. That may be accurate but the key is to ask what is happening most frequently.For example, if a behavior occurs 33% of the time following a teacher direction that is high level of predictability even though there may be other antecedents identified.

Some teams seem to struggle because she demonstrates Physical aggression, disruption, and tardies but the setting is listed most often as the Hallway. Be sure to have teams talk about the idea that you can’t always just look at the area with the highest number because you might be missing another factor. In this case, classroom is also very high. Help teams to discuss that it is possible that the tardies and some of the other behaviors are happening in the hall and others are happening in the classroom. Also, help them to consider the need to question, what is the location for tardies?ResourcesPage 38-40
