Steve Goodman, Ph.D. Presented at the 2015 Michigan Autism Conference
Abstract: Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based set of practices that is currently implemented in over 20,000 schools across the nation. Key features of PBIS include identifying behavior expectations, teaching the expectations, reinforcing engagement in the behavior expectations and correcting behavior errors. The intensity of supports increases as the magnitude of problem behavior increases. More intensive supports are based on functional assessment linked to behavior support plan that includes skill development and engineering the environment for success along with ongoing progress monitoring and program adjusted as needed. This presentation describes the key principals of Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) and how this PBIS framework can be applied to the general education classroom setting to promote success for students with autism.
