PBIS Early Childhood Professional Development Overview and Registration

Early Childhood Tier 1: Relationships and Supportive Environments

This one-day training provides participants with information on positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) for pre-k classrooms and programs using the Pyramid Model as the foundation for the training. The session begins with background information on challenging behaviors which then sets the stage for the main content of the training – building relationships and high quality pre-k classroom best practices. Some of the areas of best practice included in the training are classroom arrangement, classroom design, learning centers, schedules, transitions, large and small groups, and giving directions. The session ends with guidance on developing expectations and rules for classrooms/programs. Attendees will review case studies and participate in hands-on activities to “practice” learned content. Opportunities will be provided to reflect on one’s own practices. No prerequisites are required for this training.

Tier 2: Social Emotional Teaching

This one day training provides participants with information on positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) inside of MTSS for pre-k classrooms and programs using the Pyramid Model as the foundation for the training. The session begins with the importance of teaching social emotional skills and then details the stages of learning in efforts to help participants understand that just like any other skill, social emotional skills must be intentionally taught. Those social emotional skills that should be taught and where the majority of the session content is spent are friendship skills, emotions, and problem-solving skills. Information will also be provided on individualizing these skills for children who need extra assistance. The session ends with information on collaborating with families. Attendees will review case studies and participate in hands-on activities to “practice” learned content. Opportunities will be provided to reflect on one’s own practices. It is helpful for participants but not required to attend Early Childhood Tier 1 before attending this training.
