Every student has a right to an education and to a higher quality of life.  The Positive Behavior Support Team is comprised of 5 full-time staff trained to provide behavior support to CHDS students and ADP clients.  The program is person-centered and catered to the individual behavioral needs. The team provides direct behavior services and supports to students and clients, indirect behavior support to staff, and positive behavior intervention training (AB1172) to the entire staff.  The role of the team is critical; emotional outbursts are often the primary means of communication for those living with severe disabilities.  The use of positive reinforcement strategies are used to increase socially appropriate behaviors.  The work of the team is based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and utilize both Crisis Prevention Intervention (CPI) techniques and Positive Reinforcement Services. HBIC maintains two certified CPI instructors that not only train the Behavior Team, but all HBIC program staff as well.

Applied Behavior Analysis

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science that involves manipulating environmental variables to decrease maladaptive behaviors and increase socially appropriate behaviors. It is rooted in over 50 years of empirical evidence. Applied Behavior Analysis is the foundation of our behavior intervention program at HBIC. Our behavior team receives ongoing training in ABA strategies.

Intensive (Direct) Services

Our trained behavior team provides ongoing positive behavior support in all classrooms. Many of our students receive direct behavior services; eligible students receive 1:1 instruction within their classroom environment.

Crisis Prevention Intervention

Crisis Prevention Intervention (CPI) provides staff with proven strategies for safely diffusing anxious, hostile, or violent behavior at the earliest stage possible. Our  Behavior Intervention Supervisor is a Certified CPI Instructor, and the remaining members of the Behavior Team are all certified in CPI strategies.  The Behavior Team extends program wide support in non-violent crisis prevention techniques. Safety is our main priority.
