CFS Professor Don Kincaid Elected President for the Association for Positive Behavior Support
Donald Kincaid, a professor in the Child and Families Studies and Co-Director of the Florida Center for Inclusive Communities, was elected as the 2021-2022 President for the Association for Positive Behavior Support (PBIS). The mission of APBS is to “Enhance the quality of life of people across the life-span by promoting evidence-based and effective positive behavior support to realize socially valid and equitable outcomes for people, families, schools, agencies, and communities.”
Since its inception in 2006-2007, the Association has been led by multiple elected presidents from USF. For 10 of its 16 years, elected presidents who were USF faculty members include Drs. Glen Dunlap, Heather Peschak-George, Rose Iovannone, and Don Kincaid. In 2020, APBS adopted a new and exciting strategic plan that should help grow membership and impact underserved children, families, and adults nationally and internationally.
Much of Kincaid's professional activity involves coordinating systems change efforts at a local, state and national level to support the implementation of evidence-based practices in the areas of person-centered planning, positive behavior support, disabilities, and school and systems change.
