Our training and overall model are highly effective. Recent data shows that 90% of participants who complete Basic BIST training receive a 95% or higher score on the comprehensive Basic BIST exam. As educators incorporate the BIST model into their learning environments, these positive changes impact their students as our dedicated consultants help you:
- Increase teaching time.
- Facilitate lifelong changes for challenging students.
- Decrease disruptive behavior.
- Provide relief for adults.
Schools utilizing our consultation services often see a 20% decrease in office referrals after incorporating BIST into their buildings.
Resource Development Institute's Evaluation of BIST
The Resource Development Institute (rdikc.org) evaluated schools that have implemented BIST on a school-wide basis in four states to assess, in statistical terms, how much BIST changed the office disciplinary referrals (ODRs). The evaluations consistently revealed significant reductions in the number of ODRs. They also noted that while academic performance is dependent on a multitude of factors and was not the focus of these evaluations, it was worth noting the consistent trends in improved academic performance indicators in settings where BIST was implemented.
