What is CW-FIT?
CW-FIT is a behavioral intervention to teach appropriate skills and then reinforce those skills. It is Tier 2 Level Intervention (Positive Behavior Support model). CW-FIT is designed to:
- Help students who need more than universal supports
- Be implemented at the class-wide level
- Incorporate individualized components
- Be implemented during “problem” times during the day
CW-FIT broadly targets common functions maintaining problem behaviors in the classroom (teacher attention, peer attention, escape). Within CW-FIT, students not responding to the class-wide intervention receive targeted strategies including help cards or self-management. Functional assessment and analysis is then utilized for students not responding to targeted strategies.
