Tuesday, November 27, 2018 3:30–5:00pm Eastern Time

In this webinar, attendees will learn about the importance of matching students to appropriate Tier 2 interventions. Data-based decision making and adapting Tier 2 interventions based on students' response also will be discussed.

Dr. Bruhn is an associate professor of special education at The University of Iowa who teaches courses on social/behavioral interventions and classroom management. She has worked locally across the state of Iowa and around the country training schools in PBIS. Her research interests include multi-tiered systems of support, data-based decision making, and technology-based self-management to improve outcomes for students with challenging behavior. She is particularly passionate about helping teachers implement practical, feasible practices to improve student outcomes and has acquired nearly $3 million to support this work. In addition to creating a self-monitoring iPad app to align with schools' PBIS plans, Dr. Bruhn has authored over 50 publications, and is an associate editor for Behavioral Disorders and Elementary School Journal. In 2014, she received the Early Career Publication Award from the Council for Exceptional Children, Division of Research (CEC-DR), and in 2017, she received the E.G. Carr Initial Researcher Award from the Association of Positive Behavior Support (APBS).
