Description

Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) have been shown to be effective in supporting academic, social, emotional and behavioral growth in traditional education settings.  More recently MTSS have been adapted for implementation in juvenile justice settings.  NDTAC’s webinar features research and practitioner experts who provide overviews of facility-wide Multi-tiered Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports’ (PBIS) theoretical foundation, as well as key aspects of evidence-based best practices, data-driven decision-making, lessons learned and implications for high-quality implementation of Tier I and Tier II interventions and supports.  Youth from the Grand Mesa Youth Services Center also share their personal experiences with PBIS in the juvenile justice setting.
