Research findings of a empirical study will be presented in this session. This study investigated the effects of positive behavior support for class-related behaviors of children with cerebral palsy who had problem behaviors. Three kindergarten children with cerebral palsy participated in the study. A multiple baseline across subjects design were used to examine a functional relation between mediating strategy and class-related behaviors. Results of the study indicated that positive behavior support was effective in increasing attention concentration and instruction compliance of children with cerebral palsy and maintaining the increased behaviors. In addition, positive behavior support was effective in increasing on-task and peer collaboration behaviors. Also, limitations and suggestions for future research will be discussed.
