Teaching Pyramid Infant–Toddler Observation Scale (TPITOS™) Reliability Training

TPITOS™ is the essential tool for ensuring that infant–toddler teachers are implementing the Pyramid Model for Promoting Social Emotional Competence in Infants and Young Children with fidelity. Focusing on teacher practices and classroom environment variables, TPITOS measures how well your program’s staff is fostering responsive, nurturing relationships with children and promoting strong social-emotional development in their earliest years.

This workshop is intended for individuals who are very familiar with the Pyramid Model and want to know how the model can be implemented in infant–toddler settings. Participants who successfully complete the workshop and meet reliability standards will receive a certificate indicating their status as a certified TPITOS assessor.

Who will benefit from this seminar?

Mentor teachers, master teachers, or coaches; early childhood training and technical assistance providers; mental health consultants; education coordinators; PBIS coaches; center directors; program supervisors.
