group-kids-smilingTexas Behavior Support Initiative

The Texas Behavior Support Initiative (TBSI) is a state-level training mandated by Senate Bill 1196 and the Texas Administrative Code §89.1053. The TBSI training is designed to provide foundational knowledge for the use of positive behavior interventions and supports for all students, including those with disabilities. While the TBSI training meets legislative requirements related to procedures for the use of restraint and time-out, it also provides a framework for sharing a wide range of foundation-level behavior strategies and prevention-based school-wide, classroom, and individual interventions.
