Tier 3 Resources
Tier 3 Forms and Tools
Tier 3 Presentations and Schedule: use the link for access to various Tier 3 presentations and professional development offered through the Delaware PBS Project.
Tier 3 Support Plans – PTR Tools: School based teams can use this information to gain information about training, coaching, forms, and advanced PTR resources.
Tier 3 Support Plans – Practices Tools – Educators can find information about key Tier 3 SEB practices, including helpful handouts about various prevent, teach, and respond practices. Educators can use the handouts alongside student assessment data to adapt their classroom practices for students with Tier 3 needs. Additionally, there are links to intervention pages for each PTR intervention, including explanations of the intervention and resources for implementation. Facilitators can use these pages to help teams select and contextually appropriate interventions matched to student assessment data.
Tier 3 Support Plans – Additional Tools: School and district teams can find additional information about Tier 3 practices including Person Centered Planning resources, FBA/BIP for internalizing behaviors and PTR for families.
Tier 3 District Level Planning Tools – page currently under construction: District level teams can access information on this page related to understanding the Tier 3 structures needed to develop a results driven system for students in need of individualized behavioral supports.
Tier 3 Networking Sessions – This page houses resources shared at networking sessions.
Tier 3 Professional Learning
All DE-PBS school teams should have foundational understanding of behavioral science to establish strong practices at all three Tiers. Those working with teams at Tier 3 to design individual behavior plans should have additional skills in facilitating the FBA/BIP Process.
Tier 3 School-Level Systems Workshop
This training outlines foundational Tier 3 school-level systems features such as teaming, student identification, staff training, matching students with functional behavior supports and evaluating the overall effectiveness of Tier 3 interventions.. Participants learn about moving from “how” to implement FBA/BIPs toward building Tier 3 systems that are layered on the data, systems and practice structures of Tier 1 and Tier 2.
Intended audiences: educators responsible for developing and/or monitoring Tier 3 interventions (e.g., school psychologists, educational diagnosticians, and special education coordinators); school level MTSS Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 team leaders; district MTSS support personnel (e.g., coaches, special education coordinators, PTR master facilitators).
PTR Networking Session
During this PTR networking call, Dr. Iovannone shared about trends in school refusal behaviors and successful PTR Family cases that supported these concerns. Participants shared about how their districts were encountering and working to address school refusal during the pandemic.
Behavioral Consultation with Families
Prevent-Teach-Reinforce Model of Team Based FBA and BIPs
Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR) is a Tier 3 behavior intervention process for completing Functional Behavior Assessments and developing Behavior Intervention Plans. Participants will learn the 5 steps of the process and how to facilitate with teams in their school.
Tier 3: FBA/BIP for Educators
In this two part series, participants will learn how function based thinking can support student behavior. They will apply the basics of applied behavior analysis to address concerning behavior, understand the steps to complete a functional behavior assessment (FBA) and recognize the critical components of function based behavior intervention plans (BIPS). Please note: It is strongly recommended participants attend both sessions. These workshops are open to ALL educators (e.g., general or special education teachers) who want to learn more about using a function-based approach to address concerning behavior. Attendees will leave prepared to support the development and implementation of behavior plans, but not necessarily lead or facilitate the FBA/BIP process in their schools.
Person Centered Planning
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. Guest speaker: Dr. Rose Iovannone
Tier 3 Redesign
Practice Based Coaching for Tier 3 Behavior Supports
For those coordinating tier 3 interventions (e.g. school psychologist, behavioral specialist) through facilitating, coaching and/or training school teams in the PTR process (or any team-based model of individualized positive behavioral supports) or those interested in supporting the expansion of tier 3 practices in their school or district (administrator, PBS leadership).
Guest speaker: Dr. Rose Iovannone
