Local news outlets report on behavioral support initiative led by UMaine
WVII (channel 7) reported on the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) professional development training offered by faculty and graduate students in the College of Education and Human Development. PBIS is a nationally recognized framework that provides a continuum of supports to students to promote positive academic and socio-behavioral outcomes. “It adds to that collective, positive experience at school, and I want every child to leave their school day feeling like they’ve got a backpack full of success,” UMaine lecturer in special education Courtney Angelosante told WVII. Other outlets, including the Bangor Daily News, the Penobscot Bay Pilot and Maine DOE Newsroom shared the University of Maine news release about the project.
