Implementation and Substainability of Positive Behavior-Support in Real Early Care(InSPIRE)
Given the prevalence, severity, and long-term detriments of challenging behavior and social-emotional difficulties in young children, growing national concern exists about making high quality social-emotional learning programs accessible to all children, especially for those from low-income households. For nearly thirty years, positive behavior support (PBS) has been proven efficient and is well recognized as an evidence-based approach to reducing challenging behaviors and fostering individual's quality of life.
This project will:
1. Develop a survey tool to examine the status of implementation and sustainability of PBS in Kansas Child Care and Head Start programs
2. Examine program characteristics that lead to quality implementation and sustainability of PBS
3. Identify challenges and facilitators that impact implementation and sustainability of PBS
