Robert F. Putnam, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Senior Vice President of School Consultation at May Institute, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Association for Positive Behavior Support.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
is an application of evidence-based strategies and systems to assist schools to increase academic performance and safety, decrease problem behavior, and establish positive school cultures.
This prestigious appointment is testament to Dr. Putnam’s substantial influence in the field and the impact his expertise has on the national dialogue concerning what is becoming the methodology of choice within public school systems.
Just last year, Dr. Putnam was tapped by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to make a related presentation to the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, comprised of some of the top autism experts in the country.
