Support

-Content Expert LaQuita Montgomery

Positive behavior support should maximize the strengths and autonomy of the people in need of support and their caregivers and staff.  The strategies selected should be relevant to assessments conducted and fit the settings and circumstances.  The ultimate value of any support practice is its impact on behavior and quality of life.
