The service provides tools and guidance that facilitate positive relationships and effective teams for families and school personnel.

Intensive Behaviour Service by POPARD

POPARD's SCT/IBI service provides intensive intervention to students with significant behaviour difficulties that are beyond the current skill levels of District staff, while building capacity to provide support to similar students in the future.

Regional Courses

Regional/District Courses

Throughout the year, school districts around the province make arrangements with POPARD to host POPARD training in their district. These regional/district courses are open to out-of-district staff, and registration or enquiries about these courses should be directed to the host district.

Curious if your school district is planning to host a POPARD course? Please direct these enquiries to your School District's Student Support Services Department.
