Online Multi-Level PBS Training


LEVEL 1: Introductory Training on Positive Behaviour Support:

Level 1 Introductory training on Positive Behaviour Support is designed for all members of an organization including parents and board members. This introductory training is very detailed and provides the groundwork for your entire organization to develop a person centered positive behaviour support culture. This introductory training is step-by-step and practical giving, parents, board members and implementation teams a solid understanding of the processes and practices involved in Positive Behaviour Support. There are five sessions or modules in Level I-Introductory Training Positive Behaviour Support.

Module 1: Introduction to Positive Behaviour Support and Functional Behaviour Assessment

Module one sets the stage for Positive Behavioural Support and the Lifestyle Development Process. Module one introduces PBS as an approach that blends the values and rights of people with and without disabilities with a practical science of how learning and behaviour change occur. Learners are introduced to a set of research based strategies designed to improve quality of life and decrease problem behaviour by teaching new skills and making changes to the person’s environment. The learner is then taken through the process of correctly filling out personal profile and functional assessment interview forms.

Module 2: Setting Event Support Strategies

Module 2 introduces the concept of changing or offsetting the events/circumstances in an individual’s life that influence the likelihood of the behaviours occurring. Module 2 takes learners through the three types of setting events: physiological or biological, physical or environmental and social or interpersonal and the proactive strategies to effectively work with each type.

Module 3: Antecedent Support Strategies

Module 3 takes a detailed look at the events and actions that occur before the behaviour and directly influence the likelihood that the behaviour will occur. Learners are introduced to the concepts of scheduling, choice making, interactions styles, and interspersed requests as behavior support strategies.

Module 4: Teaching Replacement Behaviours

Module 4 re-examines the function of behaviour. The differences between social, tangible, task and sensory motivated behaviours are reviewed. Module 4 then takes the learner through a range of evidence based replacement behaviours.

Module 5: Consequence Strategies (What to do when positive replacement behaviours occur and what to do when challenging behaviour occurs)

Module 5 looks at actions and events that occur after the behaviours that influence the likelihood of the behaviour occurring again. It provides practical approaches and what to do when both desired and challenging behaviours occur.
