What Is A Positive Behavior Plan?
IDEA requires the IEP team to pay special attention to a child's
behavior if it gets in the way of his or her education or the
education of others. The IEP team must consider the use of
positive behavior interventions. Get a good idea what a positive
behavior plan looks like by viewing sample plans for students
with ADHD, autism and Asperger syndrome online at
In addition, that site has a form to help you through the
process of writing your own plan.
Use this information along with the
FAPE publication, Positive Behavioral Interventions: Parents
Need to Know. This is a curriculum consisting of 89 color
transparencies along with trainer information. Positive
Behavioral Interventions: Parents Need to Know is available in
Spanish as well as English.
The transparencies and training
materials were developed at PACER Center by FAPE and the
Technical Assistance Alliance for Parent Centers (Alliance).
They are available for free downloading online at
