Now the theory and research behind the positive behavior support (PBS) process--an approach already proven effective in schools and community programs--has been transformed into a practical, easy-to-use guide that's perfect for sharing with parents. Developed by educators and families, this user-friendly handbook offers parents easy-to-follow guidelines for identifying the reasons for their children's behavior and effectively intervening through three basic methods: preventing problems; replacing behavior; and managing consequences. The included exercises and worksheets help parents easily track their child's progress, and three illuminating chapter-long case studies walk parents through PBS and show them how this process can transform family life. This book is organized into the following parts: (1) Introduction and Overview: The Basics of Positive Behavior Support; (2) The Process of Positive Behavior Support: Problem-Solving Through Positive Behavior; (3) Stories of Positive Behavior Support: Practicing the Process Through Case Illustrations; and (4) Enhancing Lives Through Positive Behavior Support: Making Positive Behavior Support Work for Families. An index is included.
