Valerie C. Williams, director of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), recently released the second blog in a blog series on discipline and behavior. The newest blog addresses OSEP’s priorities of calling on “state and local leaders to double down on their efforts to reduce their reliance on exclusionary discipline practice,” and “creating safe, predictable learning environments for students and educators.”
In addition to sharing how OSEP’s discipline policies reflect the office’s priorities, Williams asked two OSEP-funded technical assistance centers about preventative models schools and families can use to address the behavior of young and school-aged children with disabilities. The National Center on Pyramid Model Innovations answered questions through an early childhood lens while the Center on Positive Interventions & Supports addressed questions about school-aged children.
