About this Presentation:
This presentation will provide mental health practitioners who may be collaborating with schools with an overview of Integrated Systems Framework (ISF) for providing support to students with intellectual or developmental disabilities and who may have mental health issues. ISF seeks to combine best practices in mental health supports with best practices from Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports to enhance social, emotional, behavioral and academic outcomes for all students. ISF is delivered within a multi-tiered framework that supports all students within a school, students who may need a little more assistance, and also students who require intensive levels of support.
