  • Applying behavioral principles to prevent problem behaviors, teach prosocial behaviors and respond effectively to behavior 
  • Developing successful classroom management systems 
  • Creating a positive school climate 
  • Building trauma-sensitive schools 
  • Preventing and responding to behavior escalation 
  • Structuring meetings for productive problem solving 
  • Function-based intervention planning

The CES also partners with Behavior Webinars to develop training content and provide BCBA continuing education units.
