The AEA Challenging Behavior Teams were organized to provide consistent statewide professional development and consultation to support learning for student’s ages three to 21 who are displaying serious behavior concerns. These services promote respect, compassion, and positive behavior supports enabling every learner to perform at his or her highest level within a safe, healthy and least restrictive environment. Development of the Challenging Behavior Team (CBT) is a collaborative effort of the Iowa Department of Education, the Center for Disabilities and Development at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and Iowa Area Education Agencies.
