psychologist, PASS provides students with serious emotional disturbance individualized programming that
incorporates “best practices” in serving youth with challenging behavior. Program methodology focuses on
teaching/coaching students to behave appropriately in general education or resource classrooms with the help
of a teacher trained as a Behavior Coach to support both general education teachers and students in a
