What Are Tier 3 Behavior Supports?


Tier 3 supports are specialized and intensive for individual students with significant behavioral challenges that have not responded to less intensive interventions. Tier 3 supports are based on the findings of a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and are individualized in a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) plan. These supports are planned, developed, and implemented by a team. The resources on this page are intended to help teams understand, create, and implement FBAs and PBIS plans.
