We strengthen Vermont school communities, so they're better able to work with students at risk of or experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.
To help schools develop more effective strategies and interventions, the BEST Team facilitates a variety of workshops, in-service training, university coursework, webinars, and an annual Summer Institute.
Training and technical assistance are presented within the framework of a multi-tiered system of supports, specifically, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). They are available to school staff, families/caregivers (including kin, foster, and adoptive caregivers) community members, and a variety of interagency workforce members.
The BEST Project is funded through the Vermont Agency of Education (AOE) and supported by the UVM Center on Disability & Community Inclusion.
