Welcome! Thank you for stopping by. 
At The Sorting School we promote psychological flexibility and psychological safety. We share trainings about trauma-informed approaches to assessment, planning, and instruction for all learners. 

We call this The Sorting School because we've noticed that while we may not have the answers for everything, we're pretty sure we'll find a way to sort it out. We also have a simple visual tool that helps us sort, across environments and populations.


We met on a Zoom collaboration meeting that Tina put together for Behavior Consultation Facebook Group. Tina was noticing loneliness from the Pandemic shut down and figured other professionals might be noticing the same. She enthusiastically shared her experience with learning about ACT and The ACT Matrix and Monica quickly jumped on board for the journey.

We both saw the behavior analytic (functional contextual) point of view in The ACT Matrix and spent as much time as we could learning the process by applying it to our personal lives and professional work.

We began collaborating with each other on a regular basis about our experiences - sharing our ah-ha moments and sorting out our stuck spots. 

One day, Tina said something to the effect of, "I think I figured out how to use these 4 squares for functional behavior assessments and behavior intervention plans, can I show you?" 

On May 4, 2021, we presented our very first Behavior Talk Broadcast and put together 14 hours of training that used this thing we now call The Behavior Square.

At The Sorting School we promote psychological flexibility and psychological safety. We share trainings about trauma-informed approaches to assessment, planning, and instruction in the education field and advocate for imbedding psychological flexibility training in early education experiences to build resilience for overcoming adversity and facing obstacles through the lifespan.
