My experience with behavior support was the time in secondary school when I had a friend with Autism. During the time spent with her, I didn’t have much knowledge on how to support a person with Autism, however, all I knew was to respect and monitor her behavior and her moods and help to find a solution. My perception and attitude coming into this class were that positive behavior support is an approach to advance communication and social abilities and furthermore diminishing conduct issues and difficulties. When I began taking this class my discernment and state of mind change.
It made me gain knowledge on how positive behavior support is a concept of human behavior and how it focuses on positive behavioral change techniques for different of setting like school, home, and community.My attitude and belief about behavior are that behavior is a component of the dynamic interaction between the individual and the state of nature. Power and choice, constitution, sense of self, communication skills, physical and social environment and psychological states are the factors that influence behavior.What I understand about positive behavior support is that is a practical approach to improve and comprehend behavior problem across the lifespan. Positive behavior supports the emphasis on the use educative, proactive and support in communities and schools.
