Evidence Based Behavior Support PLC/Drop-in #2: Supporting Students in the General Education Classroom
NWRESD Regional Office | January 22, 2019 8:00 am to 2:00 pm


Each PLC is a 2-hour session focused on a particular topic for the first hour and open during the second hour for discussion on this topic or other participant-generated areas of need.  These are open to anyone wishing to learn more about a particular topic related to EBBS.  See specific dates for session topic. 

To promote fluency-building of participants who previously completed a 1-Day EBBS Workshops,  several 4-hour drop in sessions (10 AM – 2 PM) are available at regional service centers.  These sessions are designed to provide participants a supportive place to bring an issue to discuss, collaborate and network with others to develop plans, and get feedback and recommendations. These opportunities are also for those participants who want to further develop their understanding of EBBS practices by experiencing how others apply these practices to real life situations.  *NOTE:  to allow time for professionals to complete a 1-Day workshop, the first Behaviour Support Drop-In at each ESD Service Center is open to all interested participants.

 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.
