Positive Behavior Supports (PBS)


Positive Behavior Supports is an extension of ABA, which focuses on the use of person-centered interventions that, uses positive approaches to help with problem behaviors.

This approach focuses on strengths rather than deficits in all aspects of the child's life.


Research suggests that PBS has made valuable contributions to improving the quality of life for not only persons with developmental disabilities but also for typically developing children with discipline problems and children with emotional and behavioral disorders.


To learn more about positive behavior supports check out the book written by John J. Wheeler Ph.D. & David Dean Richey. The book was published in 2005. Behavior management: Principles and practices of positive behavior supports
