Michael Yudin, acting assistant secretary for the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, will address the 2014 National Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) Leadership Forum Wednesday in Rosemont, Illinois.

Yudin will discuss the Department’s interest and investments in PBIS – a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions that enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. The Department-funded PBIS Center at the University of Oregon works with school, district, and state leadership teams to improve the social culture and behavioral climate of classrooms and schools.

As acting assistant secretary, Yudin's office oversees programs aimed at improving results and outcomes for America's infants, toddlers, children and adults with disabilities.

The Obama Administration strongly believes that every child deserves the opportunity to succeed, and education is crucial to the economic strength and security of our nation and communities. The Department of Education’s work is focused on ensuring all students receive an education that prepares them for success in life and their career, through programs including Race to the Top, ConnectED, School Improvement Grants, as well as ED's work to expand access to preschool and make college more affordable.
