An innovative approach that leverages Applied Behavior Analysis to address behavior challenges educators are facing in our schools.
Across the country, students are struggling to adjust to being back in classrooms and interacting with peers and teachers. According to a recent survey from the National Center for Education Statistics, more than 80 percent of public schools reported the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted students' behavior and socio-emotional development.
Invo Healthcare has developed a behavior coaching program focused on upskilling teachers and staff to incorporate behavior strategies into their classrooms. Led by a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA), who is trained to conduct behavioral assessments, interpret results, and design and supervise ABA interventions, Invo's interactive, semester-long program combines instructor-led education on ABA with ongoing 1:1 coaching, classroom observation, direct planning support, and monthly group meetings to model and implement the newly learned behavior strategies in real-time.

Our innovative Behavior Coaching Program is much more than a seminar. Our hands-on, integrated program takes place over the course of a semester. Led by a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA), who is trained to conduct behavioral assessments, interpret results, and design and supervise ABA interventions, Invo's interactive program combines instructor-led education on ABA with ongoing in-person support to ensure sustainability and scalability for your school team.
The Invo Healthcare Behavior Coaching program is an innovative effort to address the needs of students and teachers. What makes the model unique compared to how many districts historically approach training is the level of individualization that can be provided to each teacher, the ongoing training and support, and the reliance on data to evaluate training efficacy. Districts traditionally provide training, but there is often a lack of focus on what happens after training. This model focuses on classroom implementation at a critical moment for our educators and students.

ABA Beyond the Spectrum
As one of the country's largest and most experienced providers of school-based behavioral health services, it is our priority to effectively address student behavior issues in the classroom, and in turn, promote a positive, safe school climate. The program is rooted in the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
ABA is a research-based set of practices that have broad potential but have historically been limited in practice to serving students with autism spectrum disorder or with other significant behavioral needs. But those very same strategies also offer a lot of promise for educators looking to help students develop the classroom behaviors critical for learning. Beyond providing students with the supports they need, this program will serve to empower educators and drive improved retention amid significant labor shortages.
