Positive behavior support is a behavior management system used to understand what maintains an individual's challenging behavior.
People's inappropriate behaviors are difficult to change because they are functional; they serve a purpose for them. These behaviors are supported by reinforcement in the environment. Part of the mission of the Center for Leadership in Disability is to reduce the disparity in access to positive behavior supports. The Positive Behavior Videos and the Brief Behavior Questionnaire and Intervention Plan (BBQuIP) were developed to support this mission.
The Brief Behavior Questionnaire & Intervention Plan (BBQuIP)
is a positive behavior support planning tool developed by Dr. Daniel Crimmins. The BBQuIP allows parents, teachers, and birth to five educators to identify the child’s behavior of concerns, the behavior triggers, and the ways in which the adults responses to the child may be contributing to the behavior.
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.
