Considering PBIS

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) are the only approach to behavior specifically mentioned in IDEA.  In some circumstance, IEP teams are required by IDEA to consider using PBIS to address a child's behavior.  This part of the tool will help you identify if your situation requires considering the use of PBIS.

The tool currently only includes the federal requirements. Federal requirements apply in all states and states may add on (but not subtract) from the Federal laws. The tool doesn't currently incorporate court decisions or other authoritative interpretation of the law that can clarify issues not explicitly clear from the statute or regulations alone.
