National Training Institute on Effective Practices 2024: Addressing Challenging Behavior

HealthyCHILD was fortunate to send a large group of our consultants from both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia out to the 2024 NTI conference in Tampa, Florida! We had a wonderfully engaging time learning about new strategies, measures, assessments, and practices. Practitioners, educators, and administrators from all over the country joined together in discussing ways to better support and care for students, teachers, and caregivers using the Pyramid Model. As a program who uses the Pyramid Model in our daily work, we were excited to learn more at a training hosted by The Pyramid Model Consortium and the National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations. Some topics included utilizing Practice-Based Coaching, Emotionally-Attuned Teaching, Prevent-Reinforce-Teach, and Tier 3 Interventions. And some of us even got to meet THE Tucker the Turtle! Let us know if you attended the conference and what your favorite presentation or training was. We can't wait to attend next year!

We appreciated the time and effort that the conference sponsors put into this annual event. They passed out mantras (see below) to motivate participants throughout the week-long training! What is your favorite mantra?
