Presentation Abstract

This presentation examines the evolution of the Model of CARE being implemented at Coastal Academy GNETS Program and South Metro GNETS Program. This approach utilizes a neurodevelopmental, trauma-informed lens focusing on the impact of trauma on the brain. We will discuss brain states to optimize learning and promote positive behavior in combination with the Sequence of Engagement: Regulate, Relate, and Reason. The presenters will review their current process and procedures for students and staff. The material provided along with relevant examples will be connected to previous PBIS initiatives. In addition, we will provide several strategies to promote stakeholder engagement including staff buy-in. Best practice recommendations will be provided at the conclusion of the presentation with an opportunity for questions.

Conference Program Description

We will explore the evolution of the Model of CARE from a neurodevelopmental, trauma-informed lens. Participants will benefit from diverse experiences shared between two GNETS to better inform their own PBIS initiatives. In addition, there will be an opportunity to discuss the implementation of this model in other learning environments.
