The Instructionally Enhanced Pyramid Model (IEPm) training provides participants with evidence-based strategies (associated with Pyramid Model) to promote social emotional learning and decrease challenging behavior in young children.  Additionally, this training provides participants with instructional strategies to support children identified with disabilities in inclusive settings. Strategies are focused on 1) relationship-building, 2) emotional literacy, 3) social skills, 4) calm down strategies, 5) problem-solving strategies, 6) building routines, 7) prompting and 8) instructional practices such as embedded instruction.
