What is PBIS
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to supporting positive behavioral development among all students. PBIS was developed from research in the fields of behavior theory and effective instruction. PBIS supports all students through reinforcement of concrete behavioral expectations and provides a continuum of intervention that gives each student the appropriate level of behavioral support necessary to ensure success.

PBIS Strategies That You Can Use
Classroom Expectations: Having clear, consistent, positively stated behavior expectations in the classroom, are an important key in creating a positive, productive classroom environment. Referring to behavior expectations frequently will build strong behavior habits in your students/child.
Motivations for behavior: All behavior has a motivation. The most common motivations for behavior are: avoiding a task, attention seeking behavior, and a power struggle. Knowing the motivations of your student/child can help you properly address problem behavior.
ABC's of Behavior: Every problem behavior has an Antecedent (the cause of the behavior), the Problem Behavior (the actual behavior), and the Consequence (the result of the behavior). If you can figure out the cause of the problem behavior, you can often intervene and prevent the problem behavior from every taking place. Also, if you can make sure that the Consequence of the problem behavior is appropriate to the motivation, then you can reduce the occurrence of the problem behavior.
Positive Language: Starting the day off right can change everything. If you like hearing kind words, make sure you use them with your kids: “Please and Thank You, I am so glad you are here, Great Job, I am so proud of you!”
Affective Questions: These 5 magic questions can change a confrontation into a discussion. When a situation arises with a student either talk about these or have them answer them in writing:
- What happened?
- What were you thinking at the time?
- What have you thought about since?
- Who has been affected?
- What needs to happen to make things right?
