Chauntell Beal – Behavioral Specialist: One of my goals is to assist our students with daily coping skills and teach them appropriate behaviors. We will use a Research based program called Skillstreaming. Skillstreaming employs a four-part training approach—modeling, role-playing, performance feedback, and generalization. To teach essential prosocial skills to preschool, kindergarten-age and school age children. Conduct comprehensive functional behavior assessments of presenting issues/behaviors (e.g. aggression, self-injurious behavior). As well as Behavior Assessment System for Children Third Edition (BASC 3) and The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ). Collect and analysis data. Provides staff trainings in Mind set De-Escalation and Physical Restraint, behavior prevention and behavior support. Working together with the child, family and staff as a team to insure our students are a community of lifelong learners, responsible citizens, and champions of success!
