Using Positive Behavior Intervention Support for Children with Autism in Inclusive Classrooms
Grant, Marquis C.; Crossen, Sharita Williams
Online Submission
The prevalence of autism and related disorders, now categorized under the common thread of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is increasing, with one in 88 children being diagnosed each year. With this increase in prevalence comes an urgent need for interventions that will address the behavioral and learning challenges faced by children with ASD in the classroom. The need for more scrutiny of behavior-based therapies is critical given the number of children with ASD who are receiving instruction in mainstream classroom settings. The use of Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) may help educators and support personnel who are challenged when trying to find ways to meet the needs of their students with autism spectrum disorder.
