Early childhood applications of positive behavior support embrace:
- parent-professional partnerships;
- multi-component, assessment-based, contextually-relevant interventions; and
- data-based decision-making, and emphasis on quality of life.
Within early childhood practice, there is a special emphasis on developmentally appropriate practice and fostering the social-emotional growth that needs to occur for children within their early years of life.HOME SETTINGS
