Mission of FLAPBS Network
FLAPBS Network strives to build capacity across disciplines and settings to employ sustainable, evidence-based practices to improve behavior and quality of life for individuals throughout their lifespan.

What is Positive Behavior Support?
Positive behavior support (PBS) is an evidence-based approach to supporting individuals with behavioral challenges, as well as the families, agencies, and groups that assist them. PBS combines the principles of applied behavior analysis with person-centered values and involves comprehensive assessments to design effective interventions that fit within natural contexts and routines.
