Summary This project examined the impact of positive behavior support (PBS) strategies on a Mexican immigrant family with a child with behavior problems. Furthermore, this study observed parental factors, such as low income and mental health, which could affect the implementation and follow up of these strategies. In addition, this study addressed the impact of school-home collaboration, describing PBS strategies used in the focus child's preschool that were subsequently implemented in his home. A case study format was used in which the researcher observed the child in his preschool. A survey was conducted in the preschool to monitor the implementation of PBS strategies. The researcher also conducted home visits with the focus child's mother, reviewed his educational and medical records, used assessment tools, and consequently, applied PBS strategies in the focus family's home. The data revealed that after implementing PBS strategies, the length and the quantity of the focus child's outbursts decreased significantly. The findings suggest that PBS strategies can help families manage their children's behavior at home and in the community. In addition, when implementing these strategies in the home, it is very important to take into consideration family factors, such as mental health, low-income, and culture diversity.
