This Training section includes resources related to teaching people to implement positive behavior support. The resources are intended for both professionals (e.g., direct support staff, administrators, other practitioners) and parents or other caregivers. Included in this section are competency lists, training materials, and links to programs that provide training in positive behavior support. See the What is PBS? and Presentations sections of this website for additional training resources.
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. Click on the name of each resource to be redirected to it.GRADUATE TRAINING PROGRAMS
