Breakout Session to follow:
What You Need to Know About Universal Mental Health Screening
We screen students for academics, vision, and hearing... but what about mental health and social/emotional protective factors? Universal screening, the systematic screening of every student for given criteria, is increasingly used in our schools across the country, often as part of MTSS/PBIS. Come learn more about universal screening, including how to get started and commonly used assessments. Hear about other schools’ implementation, and leave with a plan for how to begin.
