Additional Publications

Working Together: A Guide to Positive Behavior Support for Families and Professionals

The purpose of this guide is to provide parents and professionals with an overview of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) and suggestions for working together while creating a support plan. Much of the suggestions in the guide are designed to help parents and professionals feel empowered as they work together during a potentially stressful period of time. Even under the best of circumstances problem behavior can evoke intense emotional responses such as fear, anger, frustration and sadness. Because of this, it is important that parents and professionals support one another through respectful and constructive interactions as they work toward creating meaningful support strategies for the individual.

TASH has a long history of developing publications on a broad range of disability-related topics. Many of these are collaborated with leading experts, and promote knowledge, research and practice that support the mission and values of TASH. For a complete list of titles, see the TASH store for available publications.
