Positive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS) is a model of Response to Intervention (RtI) for behavior that is implemented in over 20,000 schools across the country.  The goal of PBIS is to prevent and reduce the occurrence of challenging behaviors of students through the use of evidence-based practices. Behavioral methods and strategies for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be implemented in a tiered approach that may be beneficial to ALL students in the school community.  This training will aim to (a) discuss universal evidence based practices and strategies to support individuals with ASD,  (b) consider targeted, intensified, and individualized interventions and supports for individuals with ASD within a school-wide framework, and (c) provide participants with practical ideas and examples on how to widen the school-wide lens to include supports and interventions for children with ASD.
