Business Meeting #291
Positive Behavior Support Special Interest Group
Sunday, May 25, 2014
6:00 PM–6:50 PM
W185d (McCormick Place Convention Center)
Chair: Rose Iovannone (University of South Florida/Florida Mental Health)
Presenting Authors:

Positive behavior support uses behavioral principles to redesign environmental contexts that enhance quality of life while decreasing problem behavior and increasing socially valid replacement behaviors. Behavior analysts involved in positive behavior support operate in various levels including direct child and/or interventionist level to broad systems level (e.g., schools or organizations). The Positive Behavior Support Interest Group provides a forum for behavior analysts to discuss issues relevant to the profession. A business meeting will be held to provide a forum for networking, giving input on the goals and objectives, and developing plans for disseminating accurate information about positive behavior support while promoting its presence at future conferences. All interested people are encouraged to attend this meeting chaired by Rose Iovannone.
