As parents ourselves of a child with diagnosed with Lissencephaly. Regular, daily tasks can become overwhelming. The stress of everything weighs extra-heavy on families caring for a loved one struggling with changing their behavior. even the “term” behavior supports sounds clinical and terse. So, over 20+ years we have deconstructed the literature, pulling from the best research, and breaking everything down into small, user-friendly components. Our PBS services are consistent with principles of Applied Behavioral Sciences, designed & created by & for parents & caretakers; so that it’s consumable, easy to learn and most importantly ~ effective towards your families needs, wants and goals.PBS services assist individuals by providing the minimum amount of services necessary to obtain the highest level of personal growth, improvement, and independence. CBA’s values are based on quality of service, person-centered principles, and evidence-based intervention. We approach services for each person in the context of their own lives and assist them in attaining a life they value, not what other’s value or “think” is valuable for them, allowing us to address the individual’s wants and needs immediately. We ensure that any attempt to improve behavior must also include protection of that person’s constitutional, statutory, and human rights. We administer positive behavior change strategies that improve the quality of life for the individual and their families, incorporating gentle actions that absolutely minimize the need for any restrictive, punitive, or physical interventions. PBS services are provided by a Masters Level Clinician (MLC) under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).

Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) are provided to children and adults. We provide PBS services in a variety of settings for families with access to positive behavior support planning, staff coaching and support services through evidence based methods, within KY Medicaid Waivers. PBS utilizes an informal functional assessment to develop a positive behavior support plan that identifies functions of behavior disorders and environmental strategies to reduce significant problem behavior. The severity of challenging behaviors typically causes interference with a participant’s activities of daily living, social interaction, or vocation. The positive behavior support plan will be trained with the individual learner (if appropriate), all primary caregivers, and staff. These evidence-based strategies guide caretakers through the process of developing alternative replacement skills through natural-environment teaching procedures. Caretakers learn new strategies for how to respond when challenging behaviors occur, thereby reducing the frequency of problem behaviors.
The Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT) describes PBS as support aims to decrease potentially problematic behavior by enhancing an individual’s lifestyle, making environmental changes, and teaching new skills rather than focusing directly on reducing the problem behavior. Research with individuals with autism indicates that positive behavior support (PBS) programs decrease some problem behaviors. Some investigators (Carr & Sidener, 2005; Johnston et.al., 2006) regard PBS as a form of Functional Behavior Assessment and intervention (see “Functional Behavior Assessment/Analysis”), while others view it as a separate intervention approach altogether or as somewhat separate from behavior analysis (Dunlap et al., 2008, ).
PBS Research, Social Validity & Systematic Reviews:
Positive behavior support may be an effective intervention. Additional research is needed on its use specifically with individuals with autism who have a wide range of problem behavior and to determine whether it is the same as or different from standard Function Behavior Assessment/Analysis procedures and well established behavior analytic treatment methods.
