Staff evaluation of training on Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) and positive handling strategies: a social validity assessment

Carrie Caceres-Taguiang

ABSTRACT: This case study is a social validity assessment and will report on the extent to which staff members employed at BeyondAutism consider training in Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and Positive Handling strategies acceptable and satisfactory. This case study will review whether staff members find value in being trained and certified in the ‘Team Teach’ approach and whether staff consider the training to be pertinent to their work role. Given that the Team Teach approach is implemented across the services including but not limited to Early Years through to Post-19, it is important to consider the social validity of such training, especially for those who directly implement Team Teach
strategies with learners that exhibit behaviours perceived to challenge.
