School-based Supports for Children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and Challenging Behaviors: Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)

Location: Webinar
Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) is a research-based, person-centered framework focused on decreasing problem behaviors and increasing quality of life in individuals across the lifespan. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is the three-tiered model for PBS implementation in school settings as a means to prevent and promote positive behaviors for ALL children and intervene with children with challenging behaviors. Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)(formerly RTI) is defined as "the practice of providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals, and applying child response data to important educational decisions" (Batsche et al., 2005). MTSS and PBIS are grounded in differentiated instruction with each approach delineating critical factors and components to be in place at the universal (Tier 1), targeted group (Tier 2), and individual (Tier 3) levels.

2017 National Lifespan Respite Conference

The theme for the conference, Take Off with Respite, is not only a nod to the incredible history of the space industry in Huntsville, AL, also known as Rocket City USA, but also reflects the mission of respite care services. To take off is to move forward quickly, rise to meet challenges, heighten awareness, and push innovation. This phrase can also mean to take a break, relax and rejuvenate.
