 Full Description: 
This book was written for individuals who provide direct support to adults with disabilities to describe and give real-world examples of how to use positive behavior supports in varying contexts, including employment, community, and residential settings. The purpose of this book is to inform direct support professionals, thereby improving the quality of life for those individuals they support.

In this book each chapter follows the sequence of: Key Point Questions; Window to the World Case Studies; Best Practice Recommendations; Discussion Questions; and Employment, Community, and Residential Based Activity Suggestions.

The following is advantages and uses of the book from the authors:

"An advantage of this book is that agencies and organizations preparing support providers can easily use it in courses or trainings that address positive behavior supports, as it covers methodology that is seldom covered in detail in most texts. Those who are already support providers will find the information to be practical and easily implemented in applied settings. College instructors are likely to choose this book based upon: the consistent format used throughout; the readability of the book for students in college classes or adult service providers; the comprehensive coverage of positive behavior supports; and the direct applicability to applied settings. In addition to college instructors, others providing instruction, supervision, and training to support providers will find this book useful."
