How can I use Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) strategies to help my child be more socially and behaviourally skilled?

A special session for parents, early educators and school staff who are new to PBS and want to help children be more successful in their behaviour and social interactions.

In this session Dr Tim Lewis will explain Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supports in schools in the Southwest, and how parents can use these practices with their children at home.

As many schools in the Southwest region have implemented Positive Behaviour Supports, this session has been designed for parents who are wondering what the philosophy and strategies of this approach are, and how they can apply these successful strategies to support their own children’s behaviour.

The session will outline what schools are doing in PBS and introduce some practical strategies all parents and educators can use to teach appropriate and pro-social behaviour.

Dr Tim Lewis is a world leader in PBS who works with educators all over the world who want to support children’s behaviour. He is visiting WA from Missouri in the USA and has over 30 years of experience supporting children’s behaviour as a teacher and a parent. He will be speaking about how and why he started Positive Behaviour Supports over 20 years ago, why over 30 thousand schools, childcare services and youth services around the world use it, and how parents can use positive behaviour support strategies with their own children. Dr Lewis is an engaging speaker who is passionate about supporting adults to help children be more behaviourally and socially successful.
