The premier Tier 3 intervention for the Pyramid Model, Prevent‐Teach‐Reinforce for Young Children (PTR‐YC) is a research‐proven, family‐centered approach used in preschool settings nationwide to resolve persistent challenging behaviors. Now this bestselling PTR‐YC guidebook is in a thoughtfully revised second edition, with enhancements and additions informed by user feedback, the authors' training experiences, and new studies on the effectiveness of the model.

Developed by top behavior experts, this practical, reader‐friendly guidebook fully introduces the five steps of the PTR‐YC model: 1) teaming and goal setting; 2) data collection; 3) functional behavioral assessment; 4) development and implementation of a behavior intervention plan; and 5) using data, arranging for generalization, and next steps. You'll get instructions for conducting all five steps, case examples from real‐world experience, and the tools and assessment instruments you need to implement the steps effectively.
