Universal Behavior Screening

Including: Multi-tiered Systems of Support

The Center for Leadership in Disability (CLD) provides free training and technical assistance to schools and school districts interested in building the infrastructure for universal behavior screening. The CLD has designed a step-by-step process to guide schools through the universal behavior screening readiness process. The CLD will also provide guidance on which universal screener districts should use to align with their district’s needs.
