The Educational Service Center of Central Ohio provides Behavior Intervention Support Services that assist school personnel and parents in identifying interventions, and using positive behavior supports that result in improved student achievement. These services also can build a district’s capacity by training staff in non-violent crisis prevention strategies.
ESC behavior intervention specialists are trained in the Crisis Prevention Institute’s Non-Violent Crisis Intervention model of behavior de-escalation and intervention. (See below for training options.)
Participants become familiar with IDEA’s positive behavior support mandates and benefit from customized training in the areas personal safety and crisis management as well as paraprofessional roles and responsibilities. Completion of this training qualifies staff to design, implement and monitor intervention plans related to individual students or specific classrooms, aid building intervention assistance teams.
ESC trained employees increase a district’s capacity to assess and handle behavior issues in the classroom, monitor/refine ongoing behavior intervention plans on-site and develop individual behavior plans aligned with student IEPs.
