What is PBIS?

PBIS is based on behavioral theory. By focusing on the contexts and outcomes of the behavior, it is possible to determine the functions of the behavior, make the problem behavior less effective and efficient, and make the desired behavior more functional. This often involves changing systems, altering environments and teaching new skills, as well as focusing on the undesired behavior that is usually impeding the student's education.
