Field Studies of RTI Effectiveness Behavior Support Model (BSM)

Response to Intervention: Examining classroom behavior support in second grade. Exceptional Children, 73, 288–310. The Behavior Support Model (BSM) is a standard-protocol model focusing on classroom behavior support. Its purpose is to provide increasingly intensive interventions prior to referral for special education eligibility evaluation. Fairbanks, Sugai, Guardino, and Lathrop (2007) identified several phases of the BSM process: Within this model, general education teachers are responsible for implementing the universal (Tier 1) and strategic interventions (Tier 2) in the classroom. Training of school personnel was the responsibility of university researchers. A Resource That Literally Puts Research at Your Fingertips.

A Resource That Literally Puts Research at Your Fingertips

We need resources that are easily accessed, are of high quality, support best practice, and are supported at the highest level for educational quality. Quality, research-based best practice is high on everyone’s list as we create strong schools around RtI implementation. As a principal and as a special education director, I have found the “Doing What Works” Web site to be one of the best places I can go when looking for ways to improve instructional practice in my district. Educational professionals have easy access to the research on the Doing What Works, so if you have not been there in a while, take a few minutes and look at what the site has to offer.

DBR - Home. What is Direct Behavior Rating (DBR)?

DBR - Home

DBR involves rating of behavior following a specified observation period, and then sharing of that information to inform decisions. As an example, a teacher might use DBR to rate how well Johnny paid attention in math class. Then, that teacher might share that rating with Johnny and, as part of an intervention, link a consequence (e.g. sticker) to that rating. DBR tools have a long history of use as a component of a behavior support plan (e.g. self-management, behavior contract), as well as the method for collecting information about behavior change over time (e.g., monitoring effects of medication for ADHD).

Other common terms for DBR tools have included home-school note, good behavior note, behavior report card, etc... Behavior Report Card Generator. Intervention Central. Mozilla Firefox.

Usually we only examine behaviors when they are causing trouble for us in some way. However, the value we place on the behaviors has nothing to do with assessing their purpose. As the basic initial step, we must clearly define the behavior of concern.

FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIORAL ASSESSMENT (FBA) As required by IDEA - (Pertains to educational law in the United States) Introduction Functional behavioral assessment (FBA) is a variation on procedures originally developed to ascertain the purpose or reason for behaviors displayed by individuals with severe cognitive or communication disabilities (e.g., individuals with mental retardation or autism).

Teacher Behavioral Strategies: A Menu. Here is a sampling of strategies that teachers can use either to head off or to provide consequences for low- to medium-level student misbehavior: Prior to Occurrence of Behavior(s): Break student tasks into manageable 'chunks': Students may misbehave to escape activities that they find too hard or tedious. Consider breaking a larger task into smaller or easier 'chunks' that the student will more willingly undertake. If the student must complete a large number of subtasks, include an occasional 'fun break'. Increase adult supervision/surveillance: When the student's misbehavior is 'covert' (hidden), increase the adult supervision in the area. Increase 'reinforcement' quality of classroom: If a student is acting out to be ejected from a classroom, it may be that student does not find the classroom setting and/or routine to be very rewarding.
