Applying Positive Behavior Supports in the Classroom
We systematically teach students to read, write, and compute, however explicit instruction focused on teaching behavior is often overlooked. PBS takes a systems approach to teaching successful behaviors to students. Based on the well-‐researched, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), PBS has been implemented effectively in schools and school systems around the country.
