College of Education Faculty and Students to the Rescue! 

In response to school closures and stay at home orders, Utah parents have not only taken on the role of substitute teacher but behavior specialist.  Although many parents have read books about behavior management and have had plenty of opportunity to practice these skills, the additional stress of COVID-19 and the resultant stay at home orders stretches the capacity of most. To help families during this time, faculty and students who are a part of a collaborative project between the University of Utah’s School Psychology Program and Granite School District, the Behavior Response Support Team (BRST) have developed short videos that provide simple quick tips for educators and caregivers to use at home to support children’s academic progress and social-emotional growth and behavior. BRST members have been working hard to make the videos accessible to diverse groups, therefore, are posting one video a day in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin.

These videos can be found on the following sites:


Please feel free to share the content with friends, family members, and colleagues. Lastly, if you get the time, let the faculty know what you think (Dr. Aaron Fischer can be contacted at; and Dr. Leanne Hawken at
