Positive Behaviorial Interventions and Support (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. PBS 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 PBS 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. Infant Toddler PBS is designed for caregivers and other professionals working with children birth through 2 years old and their families.
