How can you resolve serious challenging behaviors of an individual student while also improving the student’s social skills and academic engagement? Discover Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR), a standardized yet individualized functional behavior assessment and intervention model that’s been proven effective in improving students’ behavior, social skills, and academic engagement.

In this edWebinar, Rose Iovannone, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Research Assistant Professor at the Florida Center for Inclusive Communities, University of South Florida, will give a comprehensive introduction to the PTR approach and how to put it into practice. You’ll:

  • Learn about the five steps of the PTR model: teaming and goal setting; collecting data; conducting a PTR functional behavioral assessment; developing a PTR behavior intervention plan; and monitoring progress
  • See how PTR intervention plans help you prevent problem behaviors, teach replacement skills, and reinforce new skills
  • Discover user-friendly tools that school teams use to implement PTR effectively
  • Get case examples that vividly demonstrate how to apply the steps of PTR

A collaborative team approach to behavior intervention that’s highly rated by teachers, PTR is your step-by-step solution to addressing students who have serious behavior challenges. This session is designed for practicing and in-training K-8 educators, including classroom and special education teachers, school psychologists, behavior analysts, and building and district administrators. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation. Join us and see how this research-proven model can make a difference!
