Behavior Intervention Support Team (BIST)

Guiding children to make good choices and experience success is a difficult task whether you are an educator, a parent or a caregiver.  The Behavior Intervention Support Team (BIST) was developed in 1990 and can assist adults who care for children in helping those children achieve at higher levels in the areas of behavior and social emotional care.  BIST empowers educators and parents to help children to develop emotional awareness and positive coping skills.  BIST also provides support for schools to develop a cohesive, like minded community that works in collaboration to increase consistency of care for all children as well as adults.

Since each situation and environment is different, we tailor our services to meet your specific needs. We don’t expect you to start off with our knowledge and skill set — that is what we are here to provide for you. Whatever your current trauma-informed level, we will meet you there and bring you up to where you need to be. Our services can support individuals, teams, complete school faculties or even entire school districts. It’s all based on your goals.

The BIST model will help:

  • Increase teaching time for all students.
  • Facilitate lifelong change in skill sets for even the most challenging students.
  • Decrease disruptive behavior in the classroom and at home.
  • Provide relief for adults who are working directly with youth.
  • Increase collaboration of adults to enhance the school community.
  • Support building and district leaders in growing capacity for all educators to increase consistency of care for children.
  • Support families to increase predictability in the parenting process (including setting boundaries, consistency in procedures and routines, problem solving with children to increase ability to plan for future success).
