Presentation Title

Positive Behavior Supports for Adults with Developmental Disabilities (Live the Life You Love!)

Highest Degree of Primary Presenter

High School Diploma

Presentation Abstract

When a child matures and challenging behaviors have been a constant part of their lives, they frequently lose dignity and respect from their supports (school, home, and community). Despite everyone's best efforts and research based best practices in school, at home, and by therapists, some people still require support as adults. There are options for adults to continue support in their homes, community based services, and group homes. Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports are an invaluable resource as providers develop Behavior Support Plans, Crisis Plans, and Safety Plans. The use of these strategies has allowed many successes for adults to go from incarceration, drug abuse, and self abuse to LIVING THE LIFE THEY LOVE. With diligence and training in PBIS procedures, Direct Support Professionals, caregivers, families, and the community can fully integrate the person with respect and dignity.
