Randall L. De Pry, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Special Education, was recently appointed to the Board of Consulting Editors for the Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions (JPBI).

JPBI is the official journal of the Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS); an international association of researchers, practitioners, parents, and educators who advocate for the use of PBS in home, school, and community-based settings. JPBI is a peer-reviewed journal published by Hammel Institute on Disabilities and SAGE which publishes empirical research on positive behavior interventions and supports.

According to their website "The aim of the JPBI is to expand the knowledge and practice of effective behavioral support in school, home, and community settings, with a focus on comprehensive outcomes in the lives of children, youth, and adults. The goal is to extend the empirical database; enhance the conceptual framework; and provide a forum for researchers, professionals, families, and policymakers."
