58. Tackling Challenging Behavior with Positive Intervention

podcast Oct 14, 2021

In this episode, I am going to focus specifically on how Positive behavior support (PBS) can be effective for our kids. Whether it is utilizing a Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) or a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) or whatever type of plan your child’s education program or school team puts together.  The point is that it can absolutely improve your child’s behavior across settings when both the family and the school team are working collaboratively together as a team.

When these supports are implemented and over time, they can have lasting benefits both at school and at home.  These plans when developed can include many different components. Here is what we do know, we know that proactive strategies reduce the likelihood of problem behavior and instead they prompt positive behaviors.

The goal of any positive behavior support plan is that it rewards our kids by teaching them how to self-manage their own behavior over time.
