Goodwill’s Positive Behavioral Alternatives (PBA) Program was established in 2006 to provide support to individuals with developmental disabilities whose behaviors create barriers to integrating into their communities and securing paid employment.
PBA focuses on implementing positive behavioral supports to assist the individuals with achieving a higher level of independence and access to their communities.
The community integration component of the program provides training in the areas of safety skills, social skills, purchasing skills and self-advocacy. Services are offered at a Job Coach to Participant ratio of 1:1, 1:2, or 1:3. A Job Coach is assigned to each individual or group and provides door-to-door transportation as well as daily support for six (6) hours.
