Supporting Student Behavior

CPIR connects you to a wealth of resources, including online trainings such as “Inspiring Independence, Positive Behavior, and Effective Communication”. CPIR is a source of information to help you plan for a meeting about your child’s behavior needs.

The link between families and positive behavioral interventions and supports is an important one. When families are meaningfully involved in educational activities their children do better in schools. Families play an important part in their child's education and social development. The PBIS Center provides the document, “Tips for Parents: Incorporating Positive Behavior Support (PBS) into the IEP”. It also offers strategies to support your child’s behavior at home in both English and Spanish.

National Center on Accessible Educational Materials for Learning provides a host of resources for SEAs, LEAs, families and educators to promote knowledge development to ensure  equitable opportunities for children with disabilities to:

  1. participate in high-quality early learning  programs,
  2. be involved in and progress in the general education curriculum,
  3. prepare to meet college and career-ready standards,
  4. participate in assessments, and
  5. transition to postsecondary education and the workforce.

IRIS Center offers a wide variety of free, online resources about evidence-based instructional and intervention practices to support behavior and classroom management, including modules, practice guides and research summaries developed in collaboration with nationally-recognized researchers and education experts, to support the education of all children, particularly those with disabilities.  See the “Resources Locator” for information and training on how to support behavior and classroom management.
