Idaho SESTA has developed a coaching process to help school-teams learn an evidence-based process to reduce challenging behaviors and optimize learning outcomes for all students.
WHAT IS BEHAVIORAL COACHING?
Behavioral coaching is designed to help school teams maximize positive outcomes for students with challenging behaviors across settings, characteristics, and disabilities. The coach uses an individualized approach with each school team to facilitate a process of fact finding, problem-solving, planning, and monitoring. The process is used to develop intervention plans both at the individual student and program level designed to prevent challenging behaviors and teach new skills that are supported by consistent adult and peer responses.
HOW DOES BEHAVIORAL COACHING IMPACT STUDENT OUTCOMES?
Helping students reach their full potential as learners occurs by (a) examining environmental determinants of behavior, (b) assessing variables related to a specific students’ challenging behaviors, and (c) developing and monitoring intervention plans both at the program level and individual student level.
