WHO are the key stakeholders and individuals in this child’s life?

Potential team members include anyone who the family or teacher feels knows the child well and will be a part of the behavior support process. Parents and family are absolutely essential to the PBS teaming process. The goal is to create a team that represents all of the adults who will interact with the child in the natural environment. When that occurs, the team will be able to develop a behavior support plan that can be used across environments. Plans that are consistent across environments are more likely to be effective and new skills are more likely to be learned and generalized. Other potential members can include therapists, administrative staff, program consultants or resource professionals, and possibly even other key stakeholders (such as, extended care providers, individuals who transport the child, or even medical professionals).
