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.
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:
a) prevention through antecedent and setting event modifications;
b) teaching alternate skills;
c) designing consequence interventions; and
d) creating long-term supports
An abridged version of the assessment process for students with less intensive problem behavior
Comprehensive case study, two sample support plans, a progress evaluation summary, and frequently asked questions
By implementing these empirical strategies, professionals and parents can not only manage to reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors, but enhance the quality of life of a child with a developmental disability.

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

I will definitely refer to this text in my staff development programs in the future --Will Overfelt, Autism Outreach Services, Buncombe County Schools
