Why the Curriculum works:

"The PBSTC and the Positive Behavior Support philosophy help our staff to use a common language and it is another tool for improving the quality of care within our programs. Some of our staff members have found the on-the-job training checks, as part of the PBSTC training, to be most helpful." Christie Ducklow, Training Director, Oconomowoc Developmental Training Center, Wisconsin

"We are using the PBSTC as part of our pre-service training program and the benefit to clients is the creation of a culture within our organization that treats people as individuals while setting a more supportive and caring environment." Michael F. Dorsey, Director of Clinical Services, Mental Retardation Division, Vinfen, Massachussetts

"The Curriculum is both teacher and student friendly and provides a wonderful base of understanding for staff with no previous training or experience while enriching the skills of well-seasoned staff." Donna Boyd, Director of Personnel/Staff Development, Tri-Developmental Center of Aiken County, South Carolina
