Schoolwide positive behavior support is a prevention-based approach for teaching and supporting appropriate behavior in all children. The book assists educators in applying this system by presenting the foundational principles of SW-PBS and effective core practices, as well as extensive research underlying this approach.
Beginning with a discussion of the foundational principals in Part One of the book, the author describes each core practice and includes figures, tables, and case examples illustrating how schools can implement each specific practice. Providing clarification on the required administrator and staff training, the book also outlines the commitment, funding, and leadership necessary for effective implementation and illustrates throughout the positive results of schoolwide positive behavior support for individuals and schools.
