The Teaching Pyramid Infant-Toddler Observation Scale: Development of an Observation Scale and Coaching Model

The Infant-Toddler Pyramid Practices is a three-tiered framework for early childhood education that includes universal teaching practices for all children, secondary practices for children at risk for challenging behavior and social-emotional delays, and intensive individualized practices for children who continue to have social-emotional delays and ongoing challenging behavior despite implementation of tiers 1 and 2. The Teaching Pyramid Infant-Toddler Observation Scale (TPITOS) is a measure of the fidelity of teacher practices related to Tier 1 Universal Practices. This project involves: (1) development, refinement, and dissemination of the TPITOS, and its certification training procedures, (2) development of a Train the Trainers model, and (3) development of a professional development approach (group training, materials, and Practice Based Coaching) to support teachers’ implementation of infant-toddler practices known to support social-emotional development.
