Supervision and the Principles of Positive Behavior Support
Supervisors of staff in the field of developmental disability services are responsible for the success of their support for those individuals in their care. This course will present evidence-based ways to promote work quality and enjoyment among support staff working with people who have developmental and related disabilities. Interactive exercises, detailed case examples, and instructive information make this course helpful for applying this knowledge whenever you may need it. Based on guidelines from Positive Behavior Support Training Curriculum published by The American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, this course focuses particularly on working with staff to provide quality supports and services that promote daily enjoyment among people with disabilities and reduce the likelihood of challenging behavior through the principles and practices of Positive Behavior Support. While the audience for this training should already know the basic human rights of the people they serve, this course is appropriate for supervisors of any direct support personnel working in any setting providing services for people with developmental and related disabilities.
