Behavior Resources


KY SELF is maintained by your Kentucky behavior consultants and contains up-to-date resources for every tier of behavior intervention, as well as current professional development opportunities related to behavior.


KYCCBD (KY Council for Children with Behavior Disorders) is the state unit of the Council for Exceptional Children. On this site, you'll find information for educators, administrators, and other professionals who support students with emotional and behavioral differences. 


PBISRewards offers a host of professional development webinars, along with downloadable resources and lists of tools, strategies, and incentives.  


PBISWorld is one of my favorites!  This site is organized by tier of behavior intervention, and each strategy is linked to a wealth of resources for implementation, including downloadable templates.


InterventionCentral hosts evidence-based behavior interventions relative to a wide range of needs.  Each link takes you to tutorial videos and practical resources for easy use in your classroom.

NCII Behavior Support for Intensive Intervention

NCII, through a collaboration with the University of Connecticut and the National Center on Leadership in Intensive Intervention and with support from the CEEDAR Center and PBIS Center, developed course content focused on enhancing educators’ skills in behavior support for intensive intervention. These eight modules support educators’ knowledge of behavioral theory and skills in designing and delivering effective behavioral supports for students with intensive needs.
