Identifying a Roadmap of Support for Secondary Students in School-Wide Positive Behavior Support Applications
Bohanon, Hank; Fenning, Pamela; Eber, Lucille; Flannery, Brigid
International Journal of Special Education, v22 n1 p39-52 2007
The need for an increased understanding of secondary and tertiary supports within a school-wide positive behavior support framework in high schools is discussed. Outcome data such as discipline referrals sent to the office seem to indicate that school-wide applications of positive behavior support can decrease the proportion of students who require more intensive supports. While limited information is available on high school level supports, connections can be made with cutting edge research on self-determination and increased student participation in buy-in to the overall process. Connecting individualized supports to the overall curriculum of the schools appears to have implications for increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of supports in secondary school settings. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
