PBS Brainstorming

PBS offers a brief brainstorming session with a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) Specialist to help individuals, families, or caregivers find solutions for challenging behaviors. This is a one-hour phone or telehealth consultation with a specialist to discuss specific ways to implement PBS strategies for an individual.

Example format (all times are approximate):

  • Part I: Description of Problem (10 minutes)
  • Part II: Person-centered information (preferences, interests, strengths, etc.) (10 minutes)
  • Part III: What has and hasn’t worked (10 minutes)
  • Part IV: PBS staff suggestions (10 minutes)
  • Part V: Parent feedback/questions (10 minutes)
  • Part VI: Selection of intervention strategies (10 minutes)

You will receive a phone call follow-up two weeks post-service to collect outcome data on ideas you will implement in the week following the initial one-hour phone call. This follow-up phone call will take approximately 15 minutes.

Eligibility Requirements:

Be a resident of WV or a caregiver of a WV resident.
