Developed by a behavior specialist and a licensed psychologist with more than 40 years of collective educational experience, PASS serves students with serious emotional disturbances in the general education setting using individualized programming that incorporates best practices.
PASS programming combines targeted and intensive social skills instruction with behavior monitoring and coaching support for the student and the teacher. The program aims to assist the student in the development of self-management skills and relies on data to drive decisions.
KEY BENEFITS OF PASS
Schools that have implemented PASS report that their ED/BD students are experiencing academic and behavioral success in mainstream settings. And they are making significant reductions in the number of students placed in more restrictive environments.
A companion CD includes:
- PASS Tracker application (Excel spreadsheet)
- Reproducible forms
- Samples of student portfolios, T-Charts, and behavior analysis
- Materials for use in training staff in PASS procedures
PASS is founded on the belief that children with emotional and behavioral issues benefit academically from participation in the general curriculum and behaviorally from educational experiences with nonhandicapped peers. PASS program participants can attest to that!
