All the resources you need to implement the CPS Model are here.
Here’s all the paperwork — the resources and instruments — and research related to the CPS model.
Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP)
The Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP)is used to identify lagging skills and unsolved problems, and it’s printable/editable/fillable. You can also make a copy of the ALSUP as a Google Doc here.
DRILLING CHEAT SHEET
The Drilling Cheat Sheet provides an overview of the drilling strategies that can be used to gather information in the Empathy step of Plan B.
PLAN B CHEAT SHEET
The Plan B Cheat Sheet provides a graphic overview of the key components you’ll want to keep in mind when you’re doing Plan B.
PROBLEM SOLVING PLAN
The Problem Solving Plan helps you keep track of the high-priority unsolved problems you’re currently working on and the progress you’re making in solving them, and it’s printable/editable/fillable too.
PROBLEM SOLVING REFERRAL FORM
The Problem Solving Referral Form was created to help schools shift from discipline referrals to referrals that prompt scheduling time for Plan B. You can tailor it to the needs of your school.
This is where to find the Plan-B-Checklist and ALSUP Meeting Checklist…so you can self-assess how you did.
PLAN B TRAINING SKILLS INFOGRAPHIC

FIVE FINGERS METHOD
If you’re trying to solve a problem with a child or adolescent who’s having difficulty providing you with information in the Empathy step, you may find that five fingers can help you get the information you’re seeking (with thanks to certified provider Jodell Allinger for creating).
CPS-DRIVEN IEP & FBA SAMPLES
You can find a CPS-flavored sample IEP for the US here, and one for Canada here. And here’s our original CPS-flavored Functional Behavior Assessment, along with a new hybrid FBA (created in collaboration with Abigail Wallman, Ph.D., school psychologist in the Farmington [CT] Public Schools).
