The School-Based Model of Individualized Positive Behavior Support is the first practical guide to the research-proven Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR) model. DARES faculty and staff, including Kathy Christiansen, Glen Dunlap, Rose Iovannone, and Don Kincaid co-authored the easy-to-use book aimed at solving serious behavior challenges in K–8 classrooms. The innovative model gives school-based teams a five-step plan for reducing problems unresolved by typical behavior management strategies.
