Functional   Behavioral Assessment & Behavior Support Plans (2 day) This   training provides in-depth instruction in the process of conducting Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA). FBA provides a problem-solving framework for teams to develop effective programs of support for students with challenging behavior. A Behavior Support Plan (BSP) is an FBA driven   intervention, designed to promote the acquisition of new skills and to decrease problem behaviors. Specific strategies include changing elements of   students’ environment to promote positive behavior, teaching new skills to replace problem behavior, and to increase social and academic competencies.

Person-Centered  Planning (2 days) This workshop provides an overview of the principles and key concepts of Person-Centered Planning. Participants will learn several methods of developing action plans in this module including MAPs (Making Action Plans) and PATHs   (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope) and how to determine which tool to use. Content includes how these tools can be used effectively to support individual students by bringing the key actors in a student’s life together to create an action plan to be implemented in the general classroom setting, as well as how they can be used to create action plans for their schools.
Tier 3:  Internalizing Behavior On Wednesday, November 15, the Delaware PBS Project welcomed Dr. Rose Iovannone from the University of South Florida. This new professional development focused on supporting students with internalizing behavior concerns, such as anxiety and refusing to attend school. Over 100 educators from 60 schools representing 13 districts were guided through the process of determining the function, or what is driving, the behavior.  This information is used to develop effective interventions that address the student’s unique needs.  Participants had the opportunity to practice developing interventions for a variety of sample case studies and ask questions about supporting students in their schools.
