    Do not miss this no-cost opportunity to gain essential skills in solving behavior problems.  Every teacher and school psychologist NEEDS this to be implementing this systemic framework for students with behavior challenges.   
     

    Join us for a training series on Prevent-Teach-Reinforce led by Rose Iovannone, Ph.D., BCBA-D.  Dr. Iovannone is one of the developers of this research-based framework for implementing functional behavior assessments (FBAs) and developing function-based support plans (BIPs). PTR is a team-driven process that is facilitated by a coach who guides the team through identification of target behaviors, developing a hypothesis, building intervention plans, and providing active ongoing support to the teacher to implement the plan and evaluate its outcomes.  You'll get explicit guidance and strategies for implementing all five steps of PTR: 

    1. teaming and goal-setting
    2. collecting data
    3. conducting a PTR Functional Behavioral Assessment
    4. developing a PTR behavior intervention plan 
    5. Monitoring progress and making data-based decisions. 

    PTR Training Dates

    All times are 12 PM - 3 PM CST (please click on the links below to register)

    Audience 

    • ASD Teachers
    • DCD Teachers
    • EBD Teachers
    • Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA)
    • School Psychologists
    • Special Education coordinators

    Registration

    This training will be conducted via the Zoom platform. We will integrate the Zoom Tools for active participant learning including; imitation features, chat features, breakout rooms, and polls.  CEUs will be provided.

    We will be implementing the Prevent Teach Reinforce (PTR) professional learning experience over the course of the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year. We will be doing this in four, 3-hour sessions. Plan to attend all sessions to learn/practice all 5 steps of PTR. If you are not able to attend it live, we will record the sessions for participants to watch after each session.  Participants will be charged $50 only if they do NOT attend or watch the recordings after registering. 

    Benefits of PTR

    • Proven effective by research and field testing in real classrooms—PTR was shown to reduce behavior problems and increase evidence of social skills and academic engagement.
    • Structured and explicit, with five systematic steps that take you beyond tips and strategies.
    • Consistent with positive behavior support and derived from the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
    • Easily adaptable to the needs and goals of each individual student.
    • Effective for both typically developing students and learners with disabilities and other challenges.

    2020 Overcoming Racism Conference November 13-14
    Overcoming Racism: Taking Back “We the People”

    What does it mean to be “We the People” through an antiracist lens, in these times? How do we address the rise of right wing populism worldwide? In the USA, Brazil, the UK, Hungary and Turkey, right wing populism and neo-fascism are taking hold. In all cases, the divides are ethnic and cultural. In the USA, the fault lines are explicitly racialized. How do we take back, or claim for the first time in our history, the idea that “all means all” when we talk about “We the People”?

    Conference Keynote Presenters:

    November 13th: Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., Noted Scholar on African American Culture & James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor.

    November 14th: Funny Asian Women’s Kollective (FAWK). FAWK exists to combat the invisibility and dehumanization of Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) women.

    The Minnesota Department of Education,  Minnesota Department of Human Services and MNPBIS are excited to offer this webinar  to support the work of Multi-Tiered System of Supports and School Mental Health .

    August 25th, 8:30-10:00, The Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) with Kelly Perales and Brian Meyer from the Midwest Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Center

    The Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) is an implementation framework designed to integrate Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) and School Mental Health (SMH) within school systems by recognizing the shared contributions of each system. The ISF applies the core features of MTSS to intentionally integrate mental health, community, school and family partners through a single system of support to promote wellness. This session is designed for district, school, and mental health partners to explore how to efficiently and effectively meet the social-emotional-behavioral health needs of all students. Strategies, resources, and tools will be shared with participants, in addition to examples of how education and mental health systems can create a single system of delivery. This webinar is a collaborative effort between the Divisions of Special Education and School Support at the Minnesota Department of Education as well as the Minnesota Department of Human Services Behavioral Health Division.

    Registration is limited, please only register if you are able to attend the live event.  If we are able to provide a recording an announcement and link will be made at a later date.

Participants will learn what the new criteria are and information to consider when serving our SLIFE population.
