Addressing Challenging Behavior: An Overview of the Pyramid Model

The Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Competence in Infants and Young Children is a sound framework of evidence-based practices developed by the Center for the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) and the Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Intervention (TACSEI) to promote social and emotional competence in early care and education systems. The Pyramid Model provides universal supports to all children to promote wellness, targeted services to those who need more support, and intensive services to those who need them.
