Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) is an approach that combines the evidence-based techniques of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) with person-centered planning.
It is based on the belief that behaviors occur because they either provide the individual with access to a desired item or activity or allows them to escape from unwanted demands or activities.
Our one-on-one PBS sessions with a PBS Facilitator will help to determine the meaning of the unwanted behavior and teach the individual new replacement behaviors to use that will increase their level of independence and quality of life.
The process consists of the following steps:
- INTERVIEWING– we interview team members, including the individual, in effort of identifying target behaviors and desired outcomes.
- OBSERVATIONS– To get a better idea of the individual’s behavior, a PBS Facilitator will observe them in different settings
- DESIGN– Once the target behaviors and their meanings have been identified, a behavior support plan will be designed and shared with the team
- TRAINING & IMPLEMENTATION– team members will be trained on intervention techniques, how to collect data, and how to respond to challenges
- REVISION– Data will be reviewed and the behavior support plan will be modified according to progress made and any additional challenges that may develop or occur.
