West Virginia Early Childhood Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

Welcome to West Virginia Early Childhood Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (WV ECPBIS) website. WV ECPBIS is a collaborative effort between the West Virginia Autism Training Center at Marshall University and the West Virginia Department of Education. Our goal is to improve the social and emotional development and competence of young children utilizing the Pyramid Model. This approach builds on the work of the National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations (NCPMI). WV ECPBIS promotes the Pyramid Model through evidence-based social emotional and inclusive practices in early childhood educational settings.

Whether you are a teacher or classroom assistant, parent or caregiver, coach or trainer, we are here to help you in promoting positive behaviors and social emotional development for our youngest learners.
