Early Childhood

This Early Childhood section includes resources focused on implementation of positive behavior support with young children (i.e., birth-5).  It covers applications in preschool programs and home-based intervention with families. 

Early childhood applications of positive behavior support embrace its features in that:

  • parent-professional partnerships are considered essential,
  • interventions are multi-component, assessment-based, and designed to fit within natural routines,
  • data are used to assess progress and
  • quality of life children, families, and other support providers is the ultimate goal. 

Within early childhood practice, there is a special emphasis, however, on developmentally appropriate practice and fostering the social-emotional growth that needs to occur for children within their early years of life.
