About Positive Behavior Steps

Positive Behavior Steps was formed in response to help our communities. In the field of developmental disabilities, persons with developmental disabilities or mental health are affected in the ability to gain access to the resources in the community to live independently. In other cases, families are overwhelmed with the tremendous responsibility of raising a child with limited skills. As an organization, we strongly believe that everyone who has a developmental disability or mental health is part of our community and can be an active participant. We advocate for our consumers and their families to have access to the same resources and opportunities that everyone else have.
