SKU: BR010P Category:



Revised in October 2022*, the Behavior Support Plan will help you maintain a strength-based, non-punitive approach to working with youth in all settings. Taking a trauma-informed and resilience-focused approach, the plan will help you observe behavior with curiosity, exploring not only the behavior itself but the underlying causes for it. It does not focus on changing behaviors, but rather on providing what is needed based upon the student’s private logic and unmet universal needs. This resource will guide you through the assessment and behavior support plan writing process.

The PDF download includes our Behavior Support Plan and Universal Needs Assessment forms. The PDF version will automatically compute the scores right in the form. You can complete the forms on your computer or print them out. Either way, you can use the forms over and over again with each of your clients.

Recommended ages: elementary through high school.
