Video/Mute

While we all need to turn off our cameras occasionally, I do hope that you remain on camera for most of the session.  I believe you’ll find that it creates a more interactive experience for all of us! Participants will also be periodically invited to unmute themselves to facilitate discussion in both large and small groups. 

Using Zoom

While Zoom can function on a variety of devices, access to a computer (or laptop) is recommended to fully participate in the activities. During the meeting, we will use various Zoom features for engagement and interacting.

PRESENTED BY TOM STACHO

I am so excited to share Early-Stage Interventions: Behavior Strategies for Every Teacher for during for the 2021 Safe & Civil Schools National Conference!

As educators, we all know that “prevention is an intervention.” Our training will focus on how your classroom and/or school can implement seven basic early-stage interventions at the universal level when students are beginning to exhibit challenging behaviors.

We will learn step-by-step procedures that will not only enhance your ability to meet the needs of challenging behaviors, but also will provide your school with a standard approach when dealing with misbehavior.

About Tom

Tom Stacho began teaching students with learning and behavioral challenges in Cleveland, Ohio. After 10 years he went on to be a school psychologist within the Cleveland Municipal School District for 16 years. Tom then became a Positive Behavior Interventions & Support (PBIS) trainer and consultant with an Educational Service Center, providing training and support related to school improvement and PBIS. Tom has been an active member of Ohio's state-level PBIS network, supporting the development and implementation of a statewide PBIS model. All of Tom's experiences ground his understanding of behavior issues within schools as well as the systems-level challenges of implementing a large initiative and framework.
