Working to make a difference for children
who display challenging behavior
The goal for most educators, parents, and other professionals is for ALL students to be successful in school and in life. To reach that goal, many have adopted a three-tiered model of behavioral support. Interventions are developed at Universal (school-wide; Tier-I), Targeted (small groups or individual students; Tier II), and Intensive (Individual; Tier III) levels to teach ALL students what they must do to be successful. This page identifies and provides links to resources for each level of behavioral support.
