Working Together to Support Student Behavior

Practical Applications of Positive Behavior Support

Family Network on Disabilities, Florida Center for Inclusive Communities at USF, and Florida’s Association for Positive Behavior Support Network are hosting a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) conference, “Working Together to Improve Student Behavior”, on March 24th and 25th, 2017. This conference is designed for family members and educators, especially those supporting students with behavioral challenges. The goal of the conference is to share current, evidence-based information and create a mechanism to promote collaboration to increase the use of positive behavior support practices, reducing reliance on reactive and punitive procedures.

The conference brings together national and local experts to deliver over 20 presentations, as well as skill-building workshops. The presentations will cover a wide range of topics related to effective school-wide discipline, classroom management, and especially individualized behavior support. The conference may be attended in person, provided the opportunity to interact with the speakers, exhibitors, and organizers. It is also being live streamed, encouraging participation via “watch parties” in your local community.
