Pivotal Concepts

  • tiered approaches that promote outcomes for all children (Pyramid Model, Inclusion Model, TA  Model) (Universal, Targeted, Intensive)
  • evidence-based practices (EBP)
  • teaching to fidelity: implementing practices or interventions as intended by the developer (typically takes coaching to achieve)
  • scaling-up: bringing the practice or model to more programs and families
  • sustainability: continuing the high fidelity implementation over a sustained period of time
  • “transformation zone”: a local to state model of demonstration, evaluation and communication feedback loop
