The PASS Program

Help students succeed in mainstream classrooms.

Working with students who have demonstrated either serious emotional disturbance or behavior disorders (and who have not responded to less intensive interventions) can be a challenging, stressful, and emotionally draining experience for a teacher. But it doesn't have to be. We can help you change all of that with PASS—a Positive Approach to Student Success!

PASS is built on the belief that children with emotional and behavioral issues benefit academically from participation in the general curriculum and behaviorally from educational experiences with nonhandicapped peers.

Developed by a behavior specialist and a licensed psychologist with more than 40 years of collective educational experience, PASS helps school staff serve students with serious emotional disturbances in the general education setting, using individualized programming that incorporates best practices. Programming combines targeted, intensive instruction with behavior monitoring and coaching support for the student and the teacher. The program aims to assist the student in developing self-management skills and relies on data to drive decisions regarding student programming.
