Positive Behavior Support: Response to Intervention University of South Florida 2009
2 Floridas PBS Project Our Mission Increasing the capacity of Floridas school districts to address problem behavior using positive behavior support. What we do… Provide training and technical assistance to districts across the state in the development and implementation of positive behavior supports at all Tiers.

4 Federal & State Support Intervention of choice in IDEA 2004 Supports NCLB Positive Behavior for Effective Schools Act* Floridas EBD Rule, 2007 Floridas Bullying & Harassment Prevention policy, 2008 RtI: to-intervention.asp to-intervention.asp –Universal (Tier 1) intervention –Evidence-based –Higher levels of PBS includes Tiers 2 & 3 –Data-based, structured problem-solving process
Three-Tiered Model of School Supports & the Problem-solving Process ACADEMIC SYSTEMS Tier 3: Comprehensive & Intensive Students who need individualized interventions. Tier 2: Strategic Interventions Students who need more support in addition to the core curriculum. Tier 1: Core Curriculum All students, including students who require curricular enhancements for acceleration. BEHAVIOR SYSTEMS Tier 3: Intensive Interventions Students who need individualized intervention. Tier 2: Targeted Group Interventions Students who need more support in addition to school-wide positive behavior program. Tier 1: Universal Interventions All students in all settings.
6 Core Principles of PBS Team process Facilitated leadership School and district action planning Data-based decision-making Flexibility with fidelity of implementation Working smarter, not harder Emphasizing prevention, teaching and effective consequences
7 PBS is RtI for Behavior Behavior –Referred to as PBS Academics –Referred to as RtI Regardless of student problem, i.e., behavior, academic or combination, schools utilize a problem solving process to assess, intervene, monitor and evaluate interventions across 3 tiers. 3 tier system established to provide support for students struggling with behavior/academic issues Tier 1 = School-Wide/Universal Tier 2 = Targeted Group/Supplemental Tier 3 = Individual/Intensive
PBS and Response to Intervention Tier 1: SW-PBS Classroom PBS Universal Screening Tier 1 School-Wide PBS, Classroom PBS Universal screening Integrity of PBS system use Tier 2 Exposure to SW system Social Skills groups Targeted standard interventions More frequent progress monitoring Tier 3 Individual PBS Specific, individualized interventions based on FBA Frequent progress monitoring Consideration of special education, alternative setting Individualized, Intensive Support Tier 2: Targeted Groups Tier 3
9 Problem Solving Steps Step 1: Identify the Problem Step 2: Analyze the Problem Step 3: Develop and Implement the Plan Step 4: Evaluate the Plan (Response to Intervention) What do we do about it? Whats the problem? How do we do it? Is it working? Why is it happening?
10 Tier 1 Example
11 Average Referrals per Day per Month
12 Average Referral Per Day Per Month What patterns do you see? What trends are apparent? How do months compare across years? What other info might you want?
13 Referrals by Location
14 Referrals by Location by Behavior Hallway / Breezeway
15 Referrals by Location by Time Hallway / Breezeway
16 Referrals by Location by Grade Hallway / Breezeway
17 Referrals by Grade from 7-8:30 a.m. Hallway / Breezeway
18 Step 1: Identify the Problem Step 1: What is the Problem? OBSERVED: Fighting in the hall first thing in the morning by 6 th and 7 th graders EXPECTED: Identify desired behaviors Link to school-wide expectations and hallway rules Students will treat each other with respect (polite language, no physical interaction, stay to the right of the hallway); be prepared and safe
19 Step 2: Analyze the Problem Step 2: Why is the problem happening? EXAMPLE: The problem is occurring because no specific hallway rules, morning/arrival procedures, 6th and 7th graders have not been taught expectations, no rewards, no supervision, additional training. Review/Gather additional information to validate hypothesis or causes Which hallways? Supervision in hallways? Has there been efficient teaching of expectations/rules and procedures? Which students?
20 Step 3: Develop & Implement the Plan Brainstorm intervention strategies (Link what weve learned during Step 2 to what were going to do) Link the intervention to the data reviewed/gathered: –If _________would occur, then the problem would be reduced. –Then, vote on the intervention Brainstorm strategies to overcome top 2 barriers identified Develop a specific plan with delineated responsibilities Include goals and progress monitoring plan
21 Brainstorm strategies related to identified causes Revise hallway rules Restructure early morning procedures Teach explicitly to 6 th & 7 th graders Increase rewards for expected behaviors Utilize peer mediation program Additional training and supervision in hallways Competition for greatest decrease in ODRs in the hall Survey students about hallway climate Step 3: Develop & Implement the Plan
22 EXAMPLE: If increased recognition of appropriate hallway behavior would occur, then the problem would be reduced. Vote on strategies Recognize appropriate hallway behavior Establish goals Teachers give out 30 Stamps/tokens each week for appropriate hallway behavior Step 3: Develop & Implement the Plan
23 Establish action steps to implement Review revised hallway procedures plan with staff at staff meeting Tuesday (Principal) Post new procedures and copy each teacher by Monday morning (Mr. First) Create skit with Drama Club to run on new show starting Monday (Mrs. Ashley) Monitor Review data at next meeting Review implementation steps list Check feedback box from staff Step 3: Develop & Implement the Plan
24 Step 4: Evaluate the Plan Is It Working? Progress Monitoring and Response to Intervention: Examine data and make decisions: Ask… Did we meet the goal? Did we do what we agreed, the way agreed, for as long as we agreed? –Do we need to modify current plan or develop a new plan? –Do we need to develop a plan to maintain or fade out the intervention if it was successful? Consider reviewing/revising problem definition and hypotheses if intervention isnt working with the problem- solving team
25 Tier 2
26 Identification of Students for Tier 2 ODR data are not sufficient to identify students needing more support at Tier 2 Recommended that multiple sources of data (ODR, referrals, nominations, standardized screeners, etc.) be used to ID students. FLPBS project can provide information on standardized screeners, efficient nomination processes, and tracking systems for students.
% % 1 - 5% Tier II: Behavioral Intervention/Support Tier II - Targeted Interventions Targeted Group Interventions Social Skills Training Small Groups Tiered Discipline Programs % 10-15% Tier II - Assessment Behavioral Observations Intervention Data (peer group comparison) Tier I - Core InterventionsTier I Assessment 27
28 Core Components of Tier 2 Continuous availability, Rapid access (within 72 hr), Very low effort by teachers, Consistent with school-wide expectations, Implemented by all staff/faculty in a school, Flexible intervention based on assessment
29 Core Components of Tier 2 Match between the function of the problem behavior and the intervention, Adequate resources for implementation (weekly meetings, plus 10 hours a week), Student chooses to participate, and Continuous monitoring of student behavior for decision-making.
30 Secondary Interventions Behavior Education Program/CICO Social SkillsSkillstreaming Problem-Solving, Conflict Resolution –I Can Problem Solve (elementary) –Prepare (secondary) Anger Management, Violence Prevention –Second Step BullyingSteps to Respect
31 Training Support at Tier 2 Provided by FLPBS:RtIB Project Practice with problem-solving process Practice with data-based decision-making Evaluation and use of Tier 1 and classroom supports Establishing a progress monitoring system Establishing a Tier 2 process at the school –Team –Decision points –Tracking and communication Specific training on BEP/CICO system
32 Progress Monitoring FLPBS:RtIB Project provides… Progress monitoring tool for array of Tier 2 interventions, Decision rules for Tier 2, and Tracking system for communicating outcomes for all students on Tier 2 support Practical experience supporting hundreds of schools at Tier 2 implementation

37 Identifying Students at Tier 3 –Students for whom secondary supports are not enough (poor response to intervention) –Students with severe and chronic behavior High ODRs ESE services or placement High scores on screeners –NOT just for students who have been identified as ESE eligible.
38 Components of Tier 3 Support Clear FBA and BIP process that meets the needs of all students Collaborative problem-solving approach Clear intervention goals that address problem behavior, appropriate behavior and lifestyle issues A progress monitoring system for each student and all students Decision points and data-based decisions
39 Components of Tier 3 Support An effective FBA process Appropriate, multi-component BIPs matched to function Contextual fit and coaching Measurements of the fidelity of intervention implementation Matching complexity of problem to differing level of Tier 3 support
40 Resources from FLPBS Project for Tier 3 FLPBS does not provide training to individual schools in Tier 3 because: –Tier 3 supports and systems are generally provided or developed at the district level –Impacting practice of Tier 3 at the school requires impacting the systems of support for Tier 3 at the district level
41 District Level Support for Tier 3 FLPBS Project can: Review practices and products to determine a need Identify areas of strength or need Provide evidence-based practices, forms, materials, etc. Target training and TA to those areas Consider systems changes that may promote implementation
42 Progress Monitoring FLPBS Project provides… Progress monitoring tool for array of Tier 3 interventions, Decision rules for Tier 3, Fidelity measure (BoQ 3) for Tier 3 supports Process for review of FBA and BIP products Tracking system for communicating outcomes for all students on Tier 3 support Practical experience supporting hundreds of students at Tier 3 implementation
43 Tier 1 Training Consists of lecture, video of Floridas implementing schools, team activities, and action planning FREE OF CHARGE to districts School Administrator required to participate during entire training District Coaches trained to provide additional assistance Ongoing technical assistance provided across year
