The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of positive behavior intervention and support (PBIS) in inclusive kindergarten classrooms on the problem behavior, such as aggressive behavior, withdrawal behavior, and interfering behavior of children with cerebral palsy. For this purpose, the subjects of this study selected three children with cerebral palsy (CP) who had had difficulty in implementation and operation of in inclusive kindergarten classrooms due to their difficulty of problem behavior. The independent variable was a positive behavior support strategy. In addition, the strategy had four levels of mediation: (a)pre-condition intervention; (b)class participation behavior teaching intervention, (c)task execution behavior teaching intervention, and (d)follow-up result intervention. The dependent variable was problem behaviors: (a)aggressive behavior, (b)withdrawal behavior, and (c)interfering behavior of the target children. The experimental treatment was delivered in an order of baseline-intervention-maintenance. Each participant was a child with difficulty in adapting the kindergarten life and having problem behavior in consultation with class support team. During intervention, behavioral contracts, reinforcement graphs, book arts, and fairy tales were used as tools, and the action board was also used. Results of this study, all participants' problem behaviors were decreased. It is aligned with the results of previous studies that the PBIS strategy reduces the problem behaviors of children with cerebral palsy in the inclusive kindergarten settings.
