August 20-22, 2018: Positive Behaviour Supports And How This Benefits All Kids In All Classrooms – 3 days
This strand will introduce participants to a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) approach to addressing problem behavior in school settings. Participants will learn about indirect and direct assessment strategies for understanding the function of a student’s problem behavior, as well as ecological influences that increase the likelihood that problem behavior will occur. Participants will also learn about evidence-based strategies for addressing problem behavior. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities to practice assessment strategies and identify intervention strategies that are logically-linked to the features of problem behavior.
