Training

This Training section includes literature related to teaching people to implement positive behavior support.  The information is directed at both professionals (e.g., direct support staff, administrators, other practitioners) and parents or other family members.  This section includes individual research studies, synopses, and discussion articles. 

Effective training is tailored to the participants and circumstances in which practices will be used.  It involves:

  • clearly defining skills to be developed,
  • effective instructional strategies (i.e.., examples, prompting, modeling, practice activities, and positive and corrective feedback) and
  • ongoing monitoring to ensure effective implementation. 

Training in positive behavior support emphasizes values as well as procedures.
