Vincent’s story: From Head Start to fourth grade


Positive behavior support is a longitudinal, team-based process. For
children with developmental and behavioral challenges, it is often
desirable to develop a dynamic milieu of support that involves school
and family, and that is continually adjusted to meet the needs to the
growing child in ever-changing environments. Functional behavioral
assessment and positive behavior interventions can be key elements in
support plans that enable children to benefit from appropriate, least
restrictive educational opportunities.
