Commentary on "Building Local Capacity for Training and Coaching Data-Based Problem Solving with Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Teams"
Riley-Tillman, T. Chris; Reinke, Wendy
Journal of Applied School Psychology, v27 n3 p246-251 2011
This invited commentary includes observations about the article "Building Local Capacity for Training and Coaching Data-Based Problem Solving with Positive Behavior Interventions and Support Teams," published in the July 2011 issue of the "Journal of Applied School Psychology." In this article Newton and colleagues present an interesting field based case study of the Team-Initiated Problem Solving (TIPS) model in relation to training school based teams to increase problem solving practices. In this invited commentary our goal is to consider the usefulness of the TIPS model for educational professionals. To accomplish this goal our thoughts are organized in a series of application questions.
