The Behavior Barriers Team has joined our Special Education Program. As VI-B federally funded Support Staff, our Behavior Technicians will work closely with their Regional Special Education Central Team to support the needs of students with identified disabilities who have either a Section 504 plan or Individualized Education Program (IEP). Referrals for BBT members to support students with disabilities are made to the Special Education Instructional Specialists (SEIS). Behavior Technicians (BBT Members) will primarily support students displaying highly disruptive, chronic, or frequent behaviors that are dangerous and/or escalated (Tier III behavior) from an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) lens.If support is needed for a student without an identified disability or Tier I or Tier II support, the school leader should utilize your school team members first: Mental Health Providers (School Psychologist or School Social Worker), Restorative Practices Coordinators, Nurse, Counselor, Discipline Building Leader. Additional support for students within general education, please work with your RI/AS.Depending on the need, there are also a variety of other district teams and departments for additional support for capacity building and training which include: Trauma-Informed and Restorative Practices, Mental Health Supports, Student Safety Team, Bullying Prevention, Substance Use Prevention, Family and Community Engagement (FACE), Culture, Equity and Leadership Team (CELT)
If you need support in knowing who your contact person is, please use the map on the home page of the Special Education Website.
