POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTIONS & SUPPORTS (PBIS)
PBIS is an implementation framework that is designed to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all children by:
A. Emphasizing the use of data for informing decisions about the selection, implementation, and progress monitoring of evidence-based behavioral practices
B. Organizing resources and systems to improve durable implementation fidelity.
PBIS is described as an approach which embodies four critical elements:
1. Clearly defined and meaningful child outcomes
2. Data-driven decision making and problem solving processes
3. Systems that prepare and support parents, teachers, interventionists, administrators and any professional working directly with children
4. Evidenced based practices that support student behavior
Who Uses PBIS?
PBIS is currently being implemented in multiple locations throughout our community. Some of the locations include: home-based early intervention, early learning programs, and school districts. Check out our SPEC program for more information on how we can support you through program-wide or school-wide implementation.
