The New Hampshire Center for Effective Behavioral Interventions and Supports (NH CEBIS) was conceived by Dr. Howard Muscott in early 2000, and established in the year 2002 as a project of SERESC (Southeastern Regional Education Services Center). Joined by Eric Mann, LICSW, began many successful years working throughout the state of New Hampshire helping schools implement PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports). 

Throughout the last 15 years it has been our honor to work with many dedicated teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, and many other passionate individuals that work directly with children to improve their social and emotional welfare and education. 

We are a professional development, research and resource center for educators and families, designed to reduce problem behavior and promote positive social-emotional and behavioral development. We focus specifically on developing effective interpersonal and organizational systems and practices and using data effectively within schools and preschools.
