CANCELED - MOVED TO WEDNESDAY WORKSHOP - TASH Doctoral Students and Beginning Special Education Faculty Workshop

The field of Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) consists of evidence-based strategies that have been effective in addressing  even the most challenging behavior exhibited by some individuals with severe disabilities.  TASH is committed to using only positive approaches and has been a strong leader in both research and advocacy related to PBS.  This research symposium will have two components:    (a) Quantitative literature reviews: Two of the three presentations will present analyses of published research literature  related to severe problem behaviors, with a focus on identifying what we currently know, and possible gaps in the current research literature related to severe problem behaviors;  and   (b) Intervention study:  One presenter will share an intervention research study using PBS to address a severe problem behavior. Following these presentations, the audience will participate in identifying a research agenda for PBS and severe problem behaviors. 

Reserach Background:

What does the current research base tell us about providing positive supports to individuals with severe problem behavior.  

In order to further our commitment to providing supports in inclusive settings for ALL individuals, it is critical that we understand the current research-base.  By understanding what we know, and what we don’t yet know, we can develop a research agenda to further promote quality, effective, and positive supports for ALL individuals.
