Interventions: Evidenced-Based Behavioral Strategies

18 July 2017

You’ve established a vision for your classroom, generated clear expectations and rules, and spent the first several weeks of school teaching those expectations and rules. As a result, your students are well behaved, respectful, responsible, and motivated. Well, almost…There are still one or two students who are:

•     Chronically disrespectful

•     Physically dangerous or assaultive

•     Failing academically

•     Disruptive to the learning climate

•     Inactive and unresponsive

This presentation will focus on evidence-based behavioral interventions that can help teachers, counselors, paraprofessionals, and others who work with challenging students in the planning and implementing of validated, tiered strategies to increase motivation and improve behavior. Areas of focus will include: pre-interventions strategies (basic classroom management); early-stage interventions (simple but effective interventions that teachers can use without assistance), and highly structured interventions (interventions involving a collaborative team approach that re more time-intensive to plan and more time-consuming to implement).
