Volume 9, Issue 2 (2022) Opportunities for Responses

Finding Ways for Students to Respond Positively

Teaching today can be quite a challenge. Behaviors for students require teachers to use Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies (PBIS) and non-verbal students require unique methods for responding to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding. This issue has two wonderful articles to provide the readers with ideas on how to address behaviors with PBIS and opportunities to respond for our students with various disabilities. Enjoy reading this issue. If you feel you have an article to submit, please feel free to do so as well. Jamie Mahoney, Ed.D.
