Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is an initiative of the Office of Special Education Programs, US Department of Education. This initiative offers assistance to build information and technical assistance to identify, adapt, and sustain effective disciplinary practices within the school system. There are three prevention tiers providing evidence based interventions for students. If you are in school social work you already know this. These are two websites developed for PBIS: Technical Assistance Center for PBIS, to use as a tool for education of others at schools using interventions, and PBIS World. The Technical Assistance Center for PBIS offers videos, research based evidence, state resources, and training on the functions of PBIS. PBIS World gives support to not only social workers but other school system personnel needing information on behaviors and prevention tiers. An easy to access database is just a click away from identifying behavior, choosing an intervention, and using data tracking forms for outcomes.
