Positive behavior support (PBS) is an evidence-based approach to supporting people’s behavior in typical home, school, work, and community settings. It can be focused at the level of individuals or used to enhance behavior within groups or systems as depicted in the model shown below.
The common features of PBS are consistent across settings, populations, and levels of application. PBS blends the principles of applied behavior analysis with other disciplines to improve the contextual fit and effectiveness of intervention. The focus of PBS is not only improving behavior, but also enhancing quality of life.
