Strengthening Young Children's Social and Emotional Skills: The Pyramid Model Day 4: Individualized Intervention: Determining the Meaning of Behavior and Developing Appropriate Responses

**Participants must attend workshop days 1-3 prior to attending this workshop.**

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.

Learners will:  

  • Practice and implement the steps of the process of Positive Behavior Support.  
  • Define form and function of communication and identify the behavioral mechanisms that contribute to viewing challenging behavior as communicative.  
  • Execute the steps of a functional assessment interview.  
  • Implement and complete 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.  
  • Assemble the knowledge they have 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.
