Positive Behavior Support (PBS) considers what is important to the person and for the person and implements those values into a comprehensive plan to address challenging behavior. PBS focuses on valued outcomes such as teaching or strengthening skills, enhancing relationships, and increasing participation in the community.
OTAC behavior support staff provides specialized training and technical assistance to families and service providers who directly support people with developmental/intellectual disabilities.
Our services include but are not limited to: designing proactive, positive behavioral support strategies for specific individuals, especially those who are in crisis; and assuring programmatic compliance with federal, state and local regulations.
All training and technical assistance provided is delivered with the aim of enabling community providers to support persons (both children and adults) with disabilities in a manner that assures health, safety and rights, and enhances the provider’s knowledge or ability to best support people in integrated residential, school and employment settings.
