Schools from across WA, who have been implementing the Positive Behaviour Support framework will be sharing their stories, successes and challenges in workshop presentations. This is a great opportunity to see what other schools have been doing with Positive Behaviour Support.

Attend the Southwest Summit to network, share ideas, learn new strategies and come away inspired! Concurrent sessions will be offered to allow schools to access a broad range of sessions suited to their context and level of implementation.

Workshop presentations will be from a range of schools across WA, including primary schools, early childhood settings, district high schools, secondary schools and education support centres.

This full-day event will be hosted by Dr Tim Lewis, Co-founder of PBIS internationally, Director of the University of Missouri Centre for School-wide Positive Behaviour Support and Co-Director of the national OSEP Center for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.

His research career has revolutionised the way administrators and teachers deploy school-wide systems for positive behavioural support and has impacted teachers in all US states and over 20 countries.

Summit registrations are open now at:

The cost is $125 per person.
