PBS ('Positive Behaviour Support') is a harmful ABA-based behavioural intervention used on vulnerable children.

Planned Ignoring is used as a tactic to 'manipulate the environment' of the victim, to change their behaviour.

Some of us know what that's like. 😥

On #PBSAwarenessDay, we need to be more aware of HOW and WHY PBS harms people, so that after we stop PBS, we don't implement any other methods which do the same thing in other ways.

Wherever we find parents and professionals pushing for ABA-based approaches like #PBS, we also see low support for the types of communication methods that nonspeaking autistic people say they find helpful.
