Esther Duggan, Inclusion and Behavior Support Specialist II (Georgia Dept. of Early Care and Learning)

Presentation Abstract

This presentation will provide an overview of Pyramid Model implementation in Georgia's early childhood settings through the SEEDS Inclusion and Behavior Support Program, with a primary focus on the individualized behavior support process at Tier 3. Attendees will receive a procedural summary of the research-based Prevent-Teach-Reinforce for Young Children (PTR-YC) functional behavior assessment and behavior planning process. We will discuss the critical elements of a team-based approach and family participation throughout the entire behavior support process to ensure shared goals and team buy-in, as well as practical, "do-able" intervention components. Presenters will share supplemental tools that have enhanced our program's Tier 3 process, specifically when it comes to monitoring consistent, correct application of behavior plan components in the classroom and ensuring that implementing teachers receive ongoing practice-based coaching support during plan implementation.
