First Edition

August 2018 | 144 pages | Corwin

Help students with the toughest behavior challenges 

Round out your school’s PBIS system with this comprehensive guide! You’ve already established school-wide behavior systems and developed solutions for at-risk students—now you’ll implement effective interventions for students with the most challenging behavior needs. 

Like companion volumes The PBIS Tier One Handbook and The PBIS Tier Two Handbook, this interactive resource takes you step by step through the implementation of intensive interventions within a multi-tiered system of support. Filled with practical examples, case scenarios, and rubrics, this book helps teams

  • Identify students in need of Tier Three support
  • Create procedures and protocols for students in both general education and special education
  • Develop individualized interventions based on student needs and data 

Students needing Tier Three help are few in number, but they can have the biggest impact on individual classrooms and school culture. By providing the intensive interventions students need in a systematic, thoughtful manner, you can improve outcomes for all students.

This handbook is user friendly with templates that are well-organized and ready to go. Administrators can spend time personalizing them rather than starting from scratch and missing key components. Highly recommend purchasing this handbook for your entire administrative team.

As educators, we often speak about giving students second chances; The PBIS Tier 3 Handbook puts these words into action.

The PBIS Tier Three Handbook: A Practice Guide to Implementing Individualized Interventions documents a relatively small community of special needs students whose requirement for 'tier three' support holds a major impact on others in the classroom. It offers teachers an approach to the concept and implementation of individualized interventions for this group, showing how to identify such needs, how to blend them into special needs groups and general classroom structures and objectives, and how to take actions to establish a Tier 3 environment. Many pages assume a workbook-style format with fill-in questionnaires and notes teachers can make directly into the book, while others outline red flags, typical assessment routines, and the elements and strategies of a Tier 3 environment. No educator's collection should be without this specific, important manual to classroom interventions and success.
