Tertiary supports are the intensive programs and strategies provided to students who require individualized supports in addition to universal and secondary supports. The purpose of tertiary supports is to reduce the severity of academic or behavior problems.
Tier 3 Practices
Individualized Student Behavior Support Plan
The student support team completes a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) to identify and verify the specific function(s) of the student’s behavior(s). This information is used to develop a comprehensive intervention support plan with the goal of making the problem behaviors irrelevant, ineffective, and/or inefficient, while building up the desired or expected behaviors. These plans often include a combination of specific behavioral and academic strategies as well as environmental changes.
