Culturally Responsive Pyramid Model Practices: Program-Wide Positive Behavior Support for Young Children
Allen, Rosemarie; Steed, Elizabeth A.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v36 n3 p165-175 Nov 2016
This conceptual article reviews current research on racial disparities in disciplinary practices in early childhood education and work to address these issues within a positive behavior support (PBS) framework. Building largely on the Pyramid Model, recommendations and a culturally responsive approach are suggested for use within a program-wide PBS framework in early childhood settings. Future directions are discussed to guide efforts toward reducing disparate racial discipline practices in early childhood programs.
