 Prevent, Teach, and Reinforce:


Promoting Student Use of


Expected Behaviors


The New York State Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Technical Assistance Center (NYS PBIS-TAC), in partnership with the Regional Special Education Technical Assistance Support Centers (RSE-TASC) Behavioral Specialists will be presenting eleven one-day regional forums across New York State.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a process for creating safer and more effective schools.  It is a research-based data-driven model that works with all students including those with challenging behavior issues.  PBIS offers a school-wide approach for identifying, teaching and acknowledging behavioral expectations to foster the most optimal school and learning climate. 


Session Overview: 

This full-day session will provide participants with an in-depth look at how to support students with challenging behavior. Participants will learn how to utilize Tier Two and Tier Three Interventions to meet the needs of students who do not respond to Tier One interventions. Within the discussion of Tier Three Supports, the participants will learn about the science behind behavior including setting events, antecedents, consequences, and functions. Participants will also learn about techniques to help prevent setting events and antecedents from triggering behaviors and to teach functionally equivalent replacement behaviors (FERBs). Finally, participants will learn how to respond to inappropriate behavior and reinforce the use of a replacement behavior.  


Please Note:

Presentation materials will be posted on the New York State PBIS website and will be provided to participants via a flash drive at time of training rather than paper versions. Please visit Regional Forum Materials 2014-2015 to see a full list of materials. 


Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops to utilize the flash drive during the training or may print the session documents in advance.     


Who should participate:

District or building level teams who are currently implementing PBIS.  This may include team members from the Universal, Targeted and Intensive school teams such as administrators, team leaders, data coordinators and any other team members.

This professional development is open to all districts in the region at no cost, on a first come, first served basis.
