This section includes resources related to teaching people to implement positive behavior support and address systems in which PBS is practiced. The resources are intended for both professionals (e.g., direct support staff, administrators, other practitioners) and parents or other caregivers.
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.
Positive behavior support at a systems level retains the same features described in other sections of this website, with these features being implemented at multiple levels
- engaging multiple stakeholders through collaborative teaming
- assessing variables that may be influencing behavior
- employing proactive, educative, and functional strategies
- data-based decision making
- an emphasis on improving quality of life of individuals and the climate within systems.
