This is the fourth of four workshop days based on the Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Confidence. The Pyramid Model has been embedded in programs throughout the world as a comprehensive, multi-tiered, team-based approach to understanding children’s behavior, which includes prevention, promotion, and intervention practices.
During this workshop, participants will identify the steps of the process of Positive Behavior Support; and learn to define form and function of communication and identify the behavioral mechanisms that contribute to viewing challenging behavior as communicative. The steps of a functional assessment interview will be discussed. Participants will also understand the development of behavior support planning including: strategies that may be taught to prevent challenging behavior; identify replacement skills that may be taught to replace challenging behavior; and identify how to respond in a way that does not maintain or reinforce challenging behavior. There will also be the opportunity to use the knowledge gained from the entire workshop series to develop a behavior support plan for a case study child.
To fully understand and embed the Pyramid Model within your program, participants are encouraged to attend all four workshops in this series as a team from your program.
