Addressing Challenging Behavior through Data: Implementing the BIRS in an Early Childhood Program

The Behavior Incident Report System (BIRS) provides early care and education programs with a system to collect and analyze behavior incidents across the program. The system provides an efficient mechanism for gathering information on key elements related to behavior incidents that can be used to make decisions about providing supports to teachers and children. In this webinar we will help participants understand what they need to do to get started using the BIRS in their program.
