Fwdshift is a proactive philosophy and positive approach to supporting people with developmental and intellectual disabilities
We use positive approaches for even the most severe behavior challenges. As an organization, we prohibit the use of aversive behavior techniques, including physical restraints. Instead, we embrace a person-centered, proactive philosophy founded on the belief that the best way to eliminate negative behavior is to
increase positive behavior. Through this approach to behavior support, we have developed a successful model to help others learn the benefits of caring without restraints. This model is based on three core beliefs.
