A site that provides six different online training modules for supporting young children with challenging behavior. The modules are simple to follow and understand and easy to apply to different settings. I found the module entitled 'Determining the Meaning of Challenging Behavior' to be very helpful.
This organization offers research-based strategies used to elevate quality of life and deter problem behavior. Their strategies are founded on teaching new skills along with changing an individual's environment. On the home page of this site, you can select one of six buttons to choose the place or arrangement that best fits the community you are in that needs support.
An outstanding document for teachers that summarizes research-based, proactive, and responsive behavior interventions and support strategies. The strategies are to be initiated classroom-wide, tailored during small-group instruction, and attended to further for individual students. This guide is an easy read with lots of information on PBIS. The self-assessment on p. 5 is a valuable tool where you can gauge your current classroom management practices.
This link provides a short animated video on PBIS. It shows you the basics of PBIS is an engaging way. It would be great to show educators who are not familiar with PBIS or teachers who need a quick refresher. Either way, it's quick and entertaining.
From lesson plans to PowerPoints, this site has all the resources you need to get started with PBIS or add to the PBIS inventory you already have. You could spend a lot of time here reviewing all of the resources. Check out the PBIS Jeopardy powerpoint available here.

Here's another valuable resource to consider. It tells you all about PBIS, why it works, and describes the components of PBIS. It also has an informative video on PBIS along with a 3-Tiered PBIS Behavior Model to review. All of the materials available here are helpful and the contents isn't overwhelming as the resources are succinct and to the point.
Here's a helpful link for parents where they can gain information and a better understanding of the PBIS model. One of the documents entitled, 'Positive Solutions for Families', was quite impressive. Just like schools, families also struggle with challenging behavior of their children. This resource lets parents know of some of the research-based, effective strategies they can rely on in creating positive solutions for their family.
