Welcome to TACSEI
Announcing an exciting new opportunity to build on and expand TACSEI work!
We are pleased to announce that some of the TACSEI staff will be working with the new OSEP funded Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA Center) to assist states in their efforts to improve systems and services related to children with disabilities. This work will keep the Pyramid and TACSEI initiatives available as we continue to help states build their capacity to implement and scale-up evidence based practices including those to support childrenā??s social emotional competence. See Co-Director Lynne Kahn's announcement on the home page of the ECTA Centerā??s new website.
The Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Intervention for Young Children (TACSEI) takes the research that shows which practices improve the social-emotional outcomes for young children with, or at risk for, delays or disabilities and creates FREE products and resources to help decision-makers, caregivers, and service providers apply these best practices in the work they do every day. Most of these free products are available right here on our website for you to immediately view, download and use.
TACSEI is a five-year grant made possible by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs.

Webinar on Preschool Suspension and Expulsion
The Pyramid Model Consortium webinar on preschool suspension and expulsion filled the first day we advertised it! The archive of the panel discussion is now available along with important resources on this critical issue. View the webinar to learn more about how the Pyramid Model is a solution to this national concern.
Three new resources have been developed to support professionals, policy-makers, and programs in understanding the relationship between PBS, PBIS, and the Pyramid Model. Check out this definitional paper on PBS and PW-PBS authored by Glen Dunlap and Lise Fox. We have also posted tips for ensuring preschool classrooms are on-board and engaged with SW PBIS and a brief overview on the development of the Pyramid Model and the evidence for the Pyramid Model practices.
