The Georgia Association for Positive Behavior Support (GAPBS) is a network of the national Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS; apbs.org). The purpose of the GAPBS network is to increase the visibility of positive behavior support in our state. The network aims to provide a collaborative statewide effort to disseminate positive behavior support practices. The network supports a range of persons interested in promoting positive behavior support capacity building initiatives, promoting the use of positive practices, and promoting membership in the national APBS organization.
The GAPBS network has been in existence since 1997, core members of this initial group then reorganized in 2008, with national APBS approval as an independent grassroots network. The GAPBS network has grown from the core group to a state-wide collaborative network representing local education agencies, state projects, disability advocates, parents, higher education, juvenile justice, and private consultants.
Presently, the GAPBS network conducts quarterly meetings in regional locations to facilitate accessibility for the members. Since 2008, the Georgia Network has organized to sponsor an annual statewide conference with the support from the Center for Leadership in Disability/Georgia State University and the Department of Educational Psychology & Special Education/Georgia State University.
