Positive Behaviour Support focus

 

PBS is both positive and proactive. Positive means increasing and strengthening helpful behaviours through ‘reinforcement’ (not using punishment or negative consequences to reduce the challenge). Proactive means anticipating where things may go wrong and preventing that from happening rather than just reacting when things go wrong.
