Tier 1 Supports for Behavior Consultants

Tier 1 Supports Help You Serve as a Behavior Consultant

Designed for and delivered to the whole classroom or even school-wide, Tier 1 interventions “set the stage” for all students’ academic and behavioral success. Most students respond well to these supports and require no further interventions.

Here’s a Tier 1 Behavior Support intervention idea you can offer teachers: “break cards.” Each card depicts and describes a coping skill, such as breathing deeply, squeezing a stress ball, or “getting the wiggles out.” When students feel overwhelmed and need a break, they can ask their teacher for a break card. The given activity can help them calm down, refocus, and self-regulate their behavior.
