PBIS Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports elementary EBD Emotional Behavioral Disorder
The use of behavioral interventions based on the tenets of positive reinforcement is a foundational element of educational programs for students with disabilities in general and for students with emotional and behavioral disorders in particular. This review will examine Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) that school districts implement. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports and related terms will be defined both operationally and theoretically. In addition, the historical antecedents of how PBIS will be examined. Current models of PBIS will be investigated. The best practices associated with initiating and maintaining PBIS will be reviewed. Although school-wide PBIS programs are used with students who have disabilities and with their peers who do not have disabilities, the review will be completed with a specific focus on students who exhibit emotional and behavior disorders.
