A Window Into BIT: PreK-12

Window Into BIT provides teams an opportunity to peak behind the curtain and see a behavioral intervention team in action. This training video is an essential tool for helping teams better understand what the BIT process looks like.  In this video, members of NaBITA’s Advisory Board address critical BIT process questions via a live demonstration of how a hypothetical BIT might function. The BIT in this video will demonstrate one case at each of the elementary, middle and high school levels, allowing teams see data gathering, risk assessment, and intervention planning in action.

This video training tool addresses the following ideas:

  • What does a Behavioral Intervention Team at the PreK-12 level look like?
  • How is the team structured and how does the meeting run?
  • How do mental health professionals, school resource officers, principals and those in charge of discipline talk together about cases?
  • What does the NaBITA Risk Rubric look like in action?
  • When should an assessment be required?
  • At what point should other assessment tools be used? How are action plans developed?
  • How and when should parents or emergency contacts be notified and involved in the intervention process? In what order are cases discussed?
  • How are conflicts between departments resolved?
