Episode Description

Is your child disruptive in the classroom — virtual or physical? As an educator, do you correct or punish the same student repeatedly? Too often parents and educators are burned out and frustrated by a student’s interfering behaviors, which can cause school exclusion and reduced social and academic opportunities.

Better behavior doesn’t always happen quickly or easily, but a comprehensive Positive Behavior Support Plan (PBSP) provides the starting point for constructive behavior change. The PBSP outlines a pathway toward understanding and changing a student’s interfering behavior(s) using research-based strategies and tactics. An individualized plan focuses on prevention, skill-building, and redesigning the environment — not the student. Listen and learn from Rachel Schwartz, Ph.D., BCBA-D, about:

  • What a PBSP entails and how it fits within a child’s IEP
  • The components of a comprehensive PBSP
  • How to collect data about your child to include in the the plan
  • How behavior plans align with other goals within your child’s IEP (and what to do if they don’t)
  • Common misconceptions and issues about Positive Behavior Support Plan development and implementation
