PBIS and SEL: Addressing Complex Group and Individual Student Issues at Tiers 2 and 3
Western MA Workshop Series - #4
Description of Presentation:
This is "hands on" workshop to provide participants with an opportunity to problem solve intervention issues as they address student support difficulties at tiers 2 and 3. The workshop is most relevant to those practitioners who have been implementing a tiered model of support and have questions and challenges with students who have been identified as needing small group or individual supports. Participants will hear about some situations encountered and addressed by the presenter in her work consulting with schools. They will also have the opportunity to present challenging situations they are encountering and brain storm solutions within a supportive workshop environment. Lastly, the presenter will provide some resources for participants to access in the future as they encounter perplexing student support situations, particularly with respect to specific student populations, i.e. ADHD, ASD, etc.
Goals of Presentation:
As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Learn about resources they can access to address more complex student support needs in general and for specific populations
2. Develop problem solving approaches for more difficult student needs at the tier 2 and 3 levels
3. Develop some specific solutions for situations they are encountering.
