7/22 & 23, 2020 PASS
Note this is a hybrid learning opportunity: The PASS program is founded on the belief that children with emotional and behavioral disabilities benefit behaviorally from educational experiences with non-handicapped peers and academically from participation in the general curriculum. Designed by a behavior specialist and a licensed psychologist who together have over 40 years of educational experience, PASS was developed to provide 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 mainstream classroom. This program will help close the gap by having students obtaining the core content from a highly qualified teacher and the behavior coach to support the social emotional challenges.
