Adults and Aging

-Content Expert Scott Shepard

Positive behavior support is essential to help people with behavioral challenges gain and retain meaningful employment, live independently, and live full lives.  As with all applications of positive behavior support, practices focus on:

    • Collaboration with employers, coworkers, patrons, staff, families, and professionals,
    • Comprehensive support plans that fit within settings,
    • An emphasis on quality of life for all involved,
    • Assessing people’s skills, work requirements, and other factors that could affect success, and
    • Ongoing data-based monitoring to ensure success including job satisfaction and home life quality.

In this section you will find literature focused on implementing positive behavior support in competitive and supported employment environments, as well as vocational and other training programs (e.g., university-based) that assist people in working.  We have also included literature on supporting people in the home and other places within the community.
