Behavior for Administrators: Using Data, Integrating Initiatives, & Planning for Sustained System Change
NWRESD Clatsop Service Center | 8:00 am to 3:00 pm


This training is designed to develop a network of administrators who not only understand what EBBS practices are but also how to integrate efforts that truly address behaviour change of all students.  Particular emphasis is placed on looking how systems put in place can either work against each other or strengthen efforts present in a district or campus-wide initiative.  Development of coherent multi-year plans are discussed, as well as what data is necessary to collect and analyze to ensure the invested resources result in truly sustainable and meaningful change in the lives of professionals and students.

Workshop Presenter

Lead Trainer: Dr. Ben Smith has over 20 years’ experience as a professor, federally funded researcher, behaviour specialist, classroom teacher, and consultant/trainer.  He has been recognized for his work related to better understanding coercive escalation cycles between adult and children and improving the functional behavioural assessment process.  He has worked with dozens of school districts from across the country to build durable and sustainable systems that promote professional’s use of true evidence-based proactive practices that build the emotional regulation skills of ALL children. His expertise has been sought out as guest reviewer in many professional journals (e.g., Behaviour Disorders, JPBI, Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis), and has been involved in several state-wide initiatives related to Positive Behaviour Interventions & Supports.  His emphasis on multi-tiered systems change and explicit teaching practices as part of comprehensive behaviour support programming has facilitated the integration of multiple initiatives that impact all professionals and all children within a building or district community.  His development of the 5-step Competing Schedule model of behavioural change has been used across the country to develop graduate programs of study, specialized programs for students with the most significant behaviour support needs, and helped countless professionals and parents understand how to ensure evidence-based practices are used in their daily interactions with children.
