"Eight teachers including our Principal from our small, PK-Grade 8 religious school in northwestern Wisconsin took a "Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support" course through SCT during spring/summer of 2013. As a result of the course, we learned much about PBIS and now we are continuing to develop and plan to implement a PBIS system. The instructor, Tammy Berg, worked with us along the way, and was extremely flexible in allowing us to work on many of the course projects as a team. Thank you Tammy! Looking forward to more professional development coursework with you in the future!"

Print Based Course Printed Course


This course reflects the growing awareness that students' emotional and mental health is key to their success in school. The readings for this course offer scientifically up-to-date, all-in-one guides to the whole range of often co-existing neuro-behavioral disorders in children, from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder to autistic spectrum disorders, nonverbal learning disabilities, sensory integration problems, and executive dysfunction. This course provides accessible information on causes, symptoms, interactions with other conditions, and treatments. In addition, effective behavioral strategies for responding to children. After completing this course, educators will have a good knowledge base of childhood mental health conditions as well as how they can play a stronger front line role in identifying potential mental health issues and help students thrive both academically and socially. This course contains content from another SCT course, the Co-existing Neuro-behavioral Course, but has brand new Mental Health Content. This is a very timely course with all of the new findings on mental health needs in school today.
