POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT
This 2-day training on positive behavior support is designed for professionals working with individuals with disabilities in home and employment settings. This includes direct support professionals, supervisors, behavior support professionals and others interested in encouraging the use of positive behavior support.
Participants will learn the key features of universal positive behavior support and the steps involved in completing individualized positive behavior support plans. People attending will create a list of actions that they can use to start implementing positive behavior supports within their organization.
Day 1 will focus on how members of an organization can move forward in encouraging strategies for preventing problematic social interactions, teaching and modeling social skills, giving positive recognition to people who are engaging in positive social interactions and strategies for integrating person-centered processes into universal positive behavior support. Day 2 will explain how person centered plans are used to launch positive behavior support plans. Examples of planning models and universal features of person-centered plans will be explored and functional behavioral assessment and function-based planning strategies will be explained with stories to demonstrate key elements of positive behavior support.
