View our recorded webinar: Using the PreSET™ to Measure, Monitor, and Achieve Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports in Early Childhood Settings presented by Elizabeth Steed and Tina Pomerleau.

A comprehensive tool that assesses program-wide positive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS), PreSET™ uncovers the full picture of PBIS in all types of early childhood settings through classroom observations and interviews. Conducted by an unbiased outside observer, such as a behavior consultant or school psychologist, PreSET™ helps programs assess universal features of effective PBIS across 8 key categories, measure progress toward their goals, and target quality improvement efforts.

This CD-ROM includes all the printable forms needed for PreSET™ implementation: the four PreSET™ forms (Administrator Interview Guide, Classroom Interview and Observation, Classroom Summary, and Scoring Guide), plus two forms for planning next steps (an Action Plan and Sample Feedback Form). The essential Manual (sold separately) gives users thorough guidance on conducting and scoring PreSET™, a technical appendix of research, and a case study that walks readers through an entire evaluation.

A separate Manual gives users thorough guidance on conducting and scoring PreSET™, a technical appendix of PreSET™ research, and a case study that walks the reader through an entire evaluation.

With this comprehensive tool, early childhood programs will have the data they need to ensure effective PBIS and work toward better social-emotional development for all young children. Learn more about the entire PreSET™ system.
