Behavioral Supports

Butte County SELPA’s Behavior Support Services (BSS) provides behavioral consultation, collaboration, and support to students and their individual education plan team members.  While the primary point of contact for behavior is our SELPA Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Tara Yarberry, other SELPA staff such as Program Specialists, Mental Health Coordinators, and other professional staff also collaborate on cases involving challenging behavior. 

Professional development opportunities in the domain of behavior analysis occur regularly throughout the school year, and specific trainings and workshops may be provided on request of district administrators. To find out more about behavior-related offerings, please visit the Professional Learning page of this website.
