7:00 PM–7:50 PM
Marriott Marquis, Rancho Santa Fe 1-3
Chair: Rose Iovannone (University of South Florida; Florida Center for Inclusive Communities)
Presenting Authors:

Positive behavior support (PBS), a systems approach, uses behavioral principles to redesign environmental contexts that enhance quality of life while decreasing problem behavior and increasing socially valid replacement behaviors. Behavior analysts involved in PBS operate within various levels from providing direct supports to individuals to applying principles of adult behavior change to broad systems (e.g., organizations, schools). The PBS Special Interest Group provides a forum for behavior analysts to discuss issues relevant to the profession. All interested parties are encouraged to attend.
