ABSTRACT
This article presents the differences between positive behavior support (PBS) at the preschool level and at the elementary school level and also discusses how to implement features of PBS in preschool programs. Early childhood professionals need to be prepared to support the development of appropriate social behavior in young children. The key features of a schoolwide PBS are to specifically define appropriate behavior that is expected in all school settings and to support appropriate behavior through specific feedback in various ways when it occurs. One of the first tasks for a PBS team is to establish behavior expectations.
