This 2 day course is the follow-up training session to “Introduction to Responding to Behaviors of Concern”. Both of these training sessions are mandatory employee courses for all staff hired with Excel Society and they were developed in response to the practice of requiring Planned Procedures. “Positive Behavioral Supports – Level 1” introduces participants to the strategy of responding to challenging behavior through a comprehensive approach. It builds on prior training of functional assessments by taking a more thorough and practice-based review of “baselines” – the starting point of any well written behavior management plan. Many of the “vague” and less-understood concepts, which are a part of any well-written Planned Procedure, are studied more in depth throughout this course. Finally, participants will get an overview introduction to and practice with various forms of data collection – a respected skill valued across professional services.
