To read our Pyramid Plus Project Story of Impact, click here.
At El Paso Pyramid Plus (EPPP) our mission is to educate our community on the value of social-emotional health in our youngest children and to promote high quality early childhood experiences through training and coaching for professionals and families through the Pyramid Plus Approach.
Why the Pyramid Plus Approach Model?
The Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Competence for Infants and Young Children is a positive behavioral intervention and support framework that early educators can use to promote young children’s social and emotional development and prevent/address challenging behavior.
In classrooms where the Pyramid Model was implemented, there were significant improvements in children’s social skills. Target children, children with persistent behavioral challenges, showed statistically significant decreases in challenging behavior.
(Hemmeter, Fox, & Snyder, 2013; Hemmeter, Snyder, Fox, & Algina, 2011)
Alliance for Kids has developed two options for Early Care and Education programs and Family Child Care Homes to participate in the Pyramid Plus project:
- Attend a community training and receive coaching support during the training process.
- Make a greater commitment to become an Implementation Site and receive supports to embed coaching, data collection/analysis and the ability to sustain the knowledge of the Pyramid Plus Approach in their program.
