Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is an approach for addressing the needs of individuals whose lives are affected by behavior problems or by other difficulties of behavioral adaptation. It has been defined as a values-based and empirically validated approach for resolving problems and helping people lead enhanced lives (Carr et al., 2002; Koegel, Koegel, & Dunlap, 1996). It is an approach that is very compatible with the empirical orientations of professionals in speech and language learning, education, and most branches of psychology. Although PBS is still fairly new, it has gained a large number of proponents and has been supported by an extensive and rapidly growing research literature.
