For Parents

Positive Behavior Support

The instructional videos on this webpage provide information and a demonstration on how to use three skills essential to the practice of positive behavior support. These three skills are: 1) making clear, effective requests, 2) using positive praise and incentives to change behavior, and 3) establishing and reviewing behavior change plans. We invite parents to watch the videos below to learn how to use these skills and then practice them with their children.
