Prevention and Support gives the Direct Support Professional (DSP) tools on how to de-escalate interfering conduct. The DSP will gain knowledge about how to better understand what the person supported may be communicating with their behavior. The student will learn why it’s important to find out the function of a person’s behavior so a new replacement skill can be taught. Finally, if all least intrusive interventions have failed and imminent danger is present, the student will learn how to safely apply an emergency physical intervention technique.

The instructor was very engaging and mindful of our time. She encouraged communication and input from the class, which helped build a sense of community in a short amount of time. I am 6 months pregnant as well, and she was very mindful and accommodating of this when is came to the physical part of the class! She was great!

Mr. Michael Kiel was amazing and fun to take course. I want to THANK, Mr. Kiel for providing class on a Sunday. That's about the only day I was able to attend and I'm appreciative about his taking the time to be there teaching us the class. It was really fun and being with the rest of the class made it even a great day.

I just wanted to share about how brilliant Chris Garcia is - not only with his vast knowledge and experience in the field, but his compassion, genuine interest in the people around him(even new students he's just met), and his ability to make training fun and impactful. He's excellent. Thanks Chris!
