The Georgia Association for Positive Behavior Support (GAPBS) is hosting its 12th annual conference on December 4-5, 2019, and PBIS Rewards is excited to return for our fourth year! As part of the larger network of the Association for Positive Behavior Support, GAPBS focuses on promoting positive behavior supports within the state of Georgia. The theme of this year’s conference is “Connecting School, Community, and Home Through Positive Behavior Support.”
Because the GAPBS Conference covers multiple areas of behavior support, this year’s conference tracks include:
- Community Support
- Early Childhood: Birth to 8
- Mental Health
- School Climate
- Advanced Tiers
For educators, interventionists, clinicians, family members, and community partners, the 2019 GAPBS Conference provides a wealth of information to put into practical use.
The keynote speaker for the 2019 GAPBS Conference is Dr. Ross Greene, child psychologist, New York Times bestselling author, and founding director of Lives in the Balance. Dr. Greene’s keynote presentation will focus on collaborative and proactive solutions for behaviorally challenging kids. Change your focus from management to collaboration with Dr. Greene’s practical strategies and insights!
