Early Childhood Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports: Promoting Social & Emotional Competence (PBIS) is an approach for changing a childīs behavior. It is based on humanistic values and research. It is an approach for developing an understanding of why the child has challenging behavior and teaching the child new skills to replace the challenging behavior.
PBIS is a holistic approach that considers all of the factors that impact a child, a family, and the childīs behavior. Through emerging research, it has been found that PBIS is a very powerful intervention that is effective with all ages, diverse groups, and people of various cultures and abilities. It is the only comprehensive approach that is evidence-based and addresses challenging behaviors within a variety of natural settings.
