Dr. Randy Sprick


Clay Whitehead

Co-CEO and Co-Founder, PresenceLearning


We have overly relied on punitive, coercive approaches to solve the puzzle of disruptive behavior. But, aha! Creating a positive school and classroom climate is a needed change and the missing piece for encouraging better behavior and boosting student achievement. Join us as one of our nation's most sought-after speakers will surprise you with new insights for big change. You'll discover how the STOIC framework, a multi-tiered system of prevention and intervention, empowers special educators. Structure for success, Teach expectations, Observe systematically, Interact positively, and Correct calmly are the pieces of the puzzle you've been looking for! The STOIC approach will inspire your entire academic community with ideas to continually upgrade universal practices and improve school safety, climate, and discipline.
