Positive Behavior Support Songs

Positive Behavior Support attempts to use a system to understand what feeds an individual behavior problem.

It aims to discover the purpose of a persons (or group of peoples) behaviors.

People act poorly because the action gets them something they want- attention, pleasure, alone time- whetever it may be that the misbehaving person wants.

The purpose may not be something that another person may understand, but it benefits the person doing the behavior.

Scott Perry’ Positive Behavior Support songs are designed to educate kids on what types of behaviors are appropriate.  For many kids, clearly knowing the rules and expectations can help motivate them to behave well. In general, children enjoy doing what is expected of them. Many children however are more complicated.

A great advance in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors. Schools should develop expectations that all the students are taught and encouraged to obey.

This is more effective than using a patchwork of behavioral management plans just for “problem children”.
