RTI Arkansas: PBIS Overview
RTI Arkansas: PBIS Overview is the first in a series of two courses on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, or PBIS. The purpose of this course is to increase understanding of PBIS and how it works.
The way behavior is addressed in a school defines its culture and has a large impact on its success in many areas. In this course, Anne Merten, PBIS Consultant at Arkansas State University, explains what PBIS is, as well as how and why to use it. She addresses teaching, acknowledging, and responding to different types of behavior. She also discusses data-based decision making and PBIS teams. Relevant responses from Arkansas teachers and administrators, interviewed about the use of PBIS in their own schools, are included throughout this course.
This course was recorded on August 25, 2016 at AETN studios in Conway, Arkansas.
