Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are faced with providing therapeutic services to students with a variety of disorders. Students with disorders such as speech and language impairments, autism, and intellectual disabilities can demonstrate behaviors within the classroom setting. Speech-language pathologists are a part of a collaborative team responsible for providing supports or interventions. Often, SLPs are unaware of behavioral strategies/interventions that correlate to school-wide expectations. This article provides examples of positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) that can be utilized to support students with disabilities in and out of the classroom.
