Addressing Challenging Behavior through Data: Introduction to the BIRS

The Behavior Incident Report System (BIRS) provides early care and education programs and classrooms with a system to collect and analyze behavior incidents in their program. The system provides an efficient mechanism for gathering information on elements related to behavior incidents that can be used to make decisions about providing supports to teachers and children within the program. In this webinar, participants learn about the Behavior Incident Report system and get a tab-by-tab review of the Excel spreadsheet and the types of analyses it offers.
