Behavior Modification

PCS #1 utilizes a comprehensive program of non-aversive techniques to address a student's problematic behavior. Our school promotes positive reinforcement to instill positive replacement behaviors. This includes a gradual educational and therapeutic process of behavior transformation involving systematic instruction in more effective ways of meeting his or her needs. This method of behavior modification and management is a positive approach to solving a student's problematic behavior without the use of aversive procedures. The goal is to identify the communicative intent underlying the behavior and examining appropriate positive interventions. Parents are always clearly informed of any and all behavioral interventions to be implemented with their student.
