This badge relates to Chapter 1 of of the Positive Behaviour Support e-Book which will introduce you to Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). It will give a description of the approach and describe the different steps involved in using a PBS approach.
PBS is a framework for supporting people with learning disabilities who may display behaviours that challenge. The aim of this chapter is to help you gain a good understanding of PBS. We will look at the most current definition of PBS, before going on to think about the ways PBS can be used.
