In many N.J. school districts the Social Decision Making Problem Solving (SDM/PS) skills have been used with much success as tools for helping student develop the skills that they need to be successful in reaching the behavioral expectations of the Student Code of Conduct established through identifying core ethical values and reviewing discipline records.

An overlapping and spiraling scope and sequence of skills is developed for teaching or reviewing skills that are taught at the start of every school year as a positive behavioral support of the annual dissemination of the Student Code of Conduct.

In addition, Social Decision Making Labs are used for pre-referral and intervention strategies for remediation problem behaviors.

In recent years behavioral training software has been incorporated with SDM/PS methods for IDEA early intervening interventions and for remediation in addition to consequences for behavior ((N.J.A.C. 6A:16-7, Student Conduct), as remedial measures designed to correct problem behavior and prevent another occurrence of the problem.
