This AAIDD bestseller is a step-by-step, concise, and easy-to-read reference for school teams, providers, students, and parents to understand, design, and evaluate positive behavior support (PBS) plans for students with developmental disabilities.

The second edition is updated with state-of-the-art information and research-based practices and is written in plain, simple language. Designing Positive Behavior Support Plans clearly breaks down all the steps it takes to gather important information about problem behaviors, develop comprehensive support plans, and evaluate the success of a support plan.

FEATURES

This contemporary reference includes:
A clear conceptual framework on PBS to think critically about how to approach a student's problem behavior proactively
Detailed directions on using functional behavioral assessments to design individualized PBS plans for children with examples and completed forms
Clearly illustrated contents of comprehensive PBS including:

b) teaching alternate skills;
c) designing consequence interventions; and

Review:

This book should be required reading for every teacher, practitioner, and parent of children with and without disabilities. Few books parallel its comprehensiveness --Lynn Koegel, Clinical Director, Koegel Autism Center/Director, Santa Barbara, California

This text is a gem because it addresses the concepts of Positive Behavior Support without compromising on scientific integrity or overloading the reader with obscure behavioral terms. I will definitely refer to this text in my staff development programs in the future --Will Overfelt, Autism Outreach Services, Buncombe County Schools

A clear, engaging, and informative presentation on how to implement PBS effectively in schools, this state-of-the-art book reflects the very best there is in science-based practical approaches for minimizing problem behavior and producing meaningful quality of life. A handy resource that can be used on a daily basis by teachers and other professionals. --Edward Carr, PhD, Leading Professor, Department of Psychology, State University of New York
