Introduction to the Behavior Pathway: The Basis for Understanding Behavior and Behavior Supports -Asynchronous Webinar -Regional Partnership Center- ALL BOROUGHS
Spaces Remaining: 899
***Asynchronous Webinar offered by the NYC Regional Partnership Center*** To accurately observe and understand a child’s challenging behavior and what environmental factors are triggering and maintaining it, school providers and educators need to understand how to utilize the Behavior Pathway. Within the continuum of Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), the Behavior Pathway is used as an intensive Tier-3 evidenced-based practice and tool. This professional learning series will enable you to define a child’s problem behavior so that any school provider who works with that child can clearly observe and measure that behavior. Participants will also learn how to observe and figure out what environmental factors are triggering, maintaining and/or reinforcing the problem behavior and, to understand what is motivating the child to continue performing that behavior. Culturally Responsive practices are also discussed. The modules also highlight some considerations when utilizing the Behavior Pathway during Blended and Remote Learning. Upon completion, participants will have the opportunity to register for a live virtual follow-up session where they can extend their knowledge through a series of application activities, and ask questions related to the content covered in each module. Please check the Learning Management System for these offerings in your respective boroughs. ***NOTE - It is necessary to watch this training series as a pre-cursor to the “Using the Competing Behavior Pathway to Identify Intervention” training series. That training will build upon the knowledge gained from watching this one so that educators and school providers can develop Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR) intervention strategies for children in need of intensive behavioral support.

This professional learning series will build upon that content to enable you to complete the Competing Behavior Pathway tool which helps educators and school providers to then identify and develop Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR) intervention strategies for children in need of Tier-3 intensive behavioral support interventions. We further discuss the importance of the contextual fit of these interventions because it takes a team approach to develop and implement a PTR plan and to ensure that it will be implemented with fidelity. It is important to consider the feasibility of PTR interventions in general, but especially in these times of Blended and Remote Learning.

This professional learning series will build upon that content to enable you to complete the Competing Behavior Pathway tool which helps educators and school providers to then identify and develop Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR) intervention strategies for children in need of Tier-3 intensive behavioral support interventions. We further discuss the importance of the contextual fit of these interventions because it takes a team approach to develop and implement a PTR plan and to ensure that it will be implemented with fidelity. It is important to consider the feasibility of P-T-R interventions in general but especially in these times of Blended and Remote Learning.
