Positive Behaviour Support - Moving Toward a Human Rights-Based Model of Support

We are coordinating a special issue of the International Journal of Developmental Disabilities on Positive Behaviour Support (PBS).

We seek manuscripts (reviews and empirical studies) that highlight how PBS can:

  • Help educate people with disabilities and their families about their human rights;
  • Strengthen self-advocacy and self-determination skills for people with disability;
  • Help individuals make choices and decisions about their own life;
  • Help people with disability to experience inclusion in schools and communities;
  • Enhance quality of life for people with disabilities and their families

We are particularly interested in studies that:

  • Are co-designed with people with disabilities
  • Share the lived experiences of people with disabilities and their families
  • Include novel methods for assessing how PBS can improve social inclusion, address social validity, and enhance quality of life
