It is more than a saying; it is a Statewide Initiative that is about respect, safety and quality of life. ODDD has set the expectations for a “Positive Intervention Culture “in our field with Information Notice 08-09-02 and 08-11-03 which prohibited prone restraints. The PAR training will discuss the challenges, benefits & values of a “Positive Intervention Culture”. This training will review typical caregiver roles like the Enforcer, Compliance Agent, Developmental Disabilities Cop, Ally & Mentor. You will also learn the tools of good care giving. This PAR training will provide you with tools to evaluate risks associated with aversive interventions and you will get a copy of the ODDD crisis intervention program assessment tool (CIPAT).
Steve & Willie serve on the ODDD Statewide Behavior Support Advisory Committee and served on the work group that developed the CIPAT
