Tier 3 Implementation Requires Training, Practice, and Feedback

posted Mar 25, 2014, 2:09 PM by Michelle Grimms

The 2013-14 Tier 3 Training Series includes Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavior Intervention Plan (FBA-BIP); person-centered wraparound; and Rehabilitation, Empowerment, Natural Supports, Education, and Work (RENEW) approaches.  To ensure these complex interventions are installed with effectiveness, the series includes in-person training supplemented by webinar-based trainings and technical assistance. The composition of the series reflects best practices in instruction by allowing for multiple, ongoing opportunities to practice the skills, ask relevant questions, and receive immediate feedback.  Trainers embed frequent activities and provide "homework" opportunities. Participants’ fluency in the skills drives the pace and scaffolding of the instruction.  These training series will continue during the second half of this school year with increasingly refined content. Coaches and personnel facilitating Tier 3 interventions with students can gain additional skill building during monthly regional Coaches Network meetings and through participation in bi-annual statewide leadership conferences.
