    • SIS Person Centered

      Person-Centered Planning with the Supports Intensity ...

      This guide is designed for use after the SIS—A has been administered, as a practical way to assist planning team members in using the results to develop individual-specific support plans. The guide does not require the participation of those who were involved in administering the SIS—A. The intent is to assist teams in pursuing the type of personalized supports planning that meaningfully enhances a person’s quality of life.  This structured 18-step process begins with reviewing SIS—A assessment results and ends with outlining a weekly schedule in which settings, activities, and supports are unambiguously identified. The outcome of the process is a “24-7” support plan for a typical week. Settings and activities for the week, based on the preferences and interests of the person who is the focus of the planning team’s efforts, are aligned with the specific supports the person needs to be fully engaged. Four of the 18 steps require information from each planning team member individually, and multiple copies of the forms for each of those 4 steps are included with the guide for ease of use.

      Implementing this process generally requires at least four face-to-face meetings, although some variability is possible, depending on the team and the time frame:

      • Phase 1, steps 1-11: the SIS—A results are reviewed, initial long-term goals and support needs corresponding to each SIS—A domain are identified, and support needs that go across domains are identified.
      • Phase 2, steps 12-15: culminates with each team member contributing to the prioritization of goals, settings, and activities. 
      • Phase 3, steps 16-17: supports are identified to address the priorities established in Phase 2. At this point, the support plan for a typical week is established, and implementation begins.
      • Phase 4, step 18: team members meet to evaluate progress made on the plan, discuss any unforeseen obstacles, identify potential solutions, and plan future follow-up.

        Maltreatment of People With Intellectual and Developm...

        This comprehensive and compelling work presents research and evidence-based strategies related to the maltreatment of people with IDD across the lifespan. Using the public health framework that moves from surveillance to screening to intervention to policy implications, this volume presents research in a life-course perspective separated into three sections: IDD in Early Life, Adults With IDD, and Interventions for People With IDD. Together  they emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration to better serve and provide for people with IDD.

        Eleven chapters present research, strategies, interventions, and approaches in the key areas involved in the understanding, treatment, and prevention of maltreatment of people with IDD throughout their lives:

        • A systematic review of the literature on the association between childhood disability and child maltreatment
        • Sexual trauma in children and adolescents with IDD
        • Effects of the bullying of youth with IDD
        • Heightened social vulnerability among adults with IDD
        • Removing reproductive, sexual, and child-rearing rights of women with IDD
        • Relationships and social networks among a sample of mothers with IDD
        • Victimization risk of older adults with ID manifesting later in life
        • Prevention of maltreatment of adults with IDD
        • Systemic change in services for parents with intellectual and other cognitive disabilities
        • Post-injury monitoring of abusive head trauma
        • Discriminatory killing and execution of people with IDD
        Designed for policymakers, researchers, clinicians, and students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, this resource provides an in-depth look at the knowledge base in addressing the maltreatment of these vulnerable populations.

          Cross-Cultural Quality of Life: Enhancing the Lives o...

          The second edition of this popular book reflects many of the changes in the field of IDD in the first 15 years of this century, including an increased understanding of the quality-of-life (QOL) concept and the influence it has had on the field. This edition represents the work of 34 contributors, representing 14 countries, who capture the significant role the QOL concept has played in personal involvement and empowerment, self-advocacy, family-related QOL, supports planning, outcomes evaluation, continuous quality improvement, organization transformation, and systems-level change.

          The sample of cultures in this edition represents a somewhat different sample than that found in the first edition and is amplified by an extensive reference list that presents a broader, more complete view of international QOL work. Chapters from the developing world are included, recognizing the significant challenges faced by many countries. The contributors to this edition include those whose work is familiar and widely published, as well as self-advocates who speak from their own experiences and insights. The chapters in this edition are grouped into the following sections: the culture of QOL, QOL at the microsystem level, QOL at the mesosystem level, QOL at the macrosystem level, and the cross-cultural QOL agenda.

              This timely and important publication provides a concise review of what we know about ten key areas in the field of IDD and what that knowledge means for future developments in public policy, research, and practice. Developed as a foundational review of the knowledge base in preparation for the 2015 National Goals conference, the book examines the following areas:

              • Aging, retirement, and end of life
              • Education
              • Employment and economic self-sufficiency
              • Health and wellness
              • Justice
              • Long-term supports and services
              • Self-determination and self-advocacy
              • Social inclusion
              • Supports for families
              • Workforce issues

              This book will be particularly useful to practitioners, policy analysts, researchers, and students. Taken as a whole, this work concisely illustrates the gaps between the existing evidence and what must still be demonstrated, what practices we know to be effective and contemporary strategies for implementing those practices, and where we are and where we aspire to be in our nation’s public policy.

                        Positive Behavior Support Training Curriculum (3rd Ed...

                        The 3rd edition of the Positive Behavior Support Training Curriculum (PBSTC) teaches direct support staff and supervisors the principles of positive behavior support to use in interacting with people with intellectual disability. This curriculum, originally published in 2004, has been successfully implemented by service providers and agencies across the country and abroad.  

                        Positive behavior support strategies are known to work in dealing with challenging behavior and the PBSTC contains strategies that create a respectful client-staff environment. The PBSTC contains 25 training modules, 9 of which are designed for supervisors only.  Each module addresses a key set of skills in positive behavior support, and the supervisors' modules also train supervisors to be effective managers. Each module consists of a Module Summary Sheet, Presentation Outline, Activity Sheets for trainee use during training, and Skills Checks to use to ensure trainees demonstrate mastery of the content.

                        Because the curriculum is competency-based, trainees are required to demonstrate mastery of the skills acquired after the completion of each module, with the help of quizzes, role plays, and other activities. In addition, following the classroom training, approximately 45 minutes is required with each trainee in the his or her routine work setting in order for the trainer to assess on-the-job mastery of the skills.

                        Customized train-the-trainer and direct support staff training workshops are available from Author Dennis H. Reid

                         

                        How the Third Edition of PBSTC Differs From Previous Editions

                        • Curriculum has been updated to clarify key points in understanding and implementing positive behavior supports.
                        • New content has been added to reflect recent research and changes in currently accepted positive behavior support practice. These changes are reflected largely in 3 new modules:
                        1. The role of setting events
                        2. The importance of meaningful and integrated day supports in conjunction with PBS best practices and recent changes in regulations and funding
                        3. The application of naturalistic teaching to typical community environments
                        • Several modules in earlier editions have been deleted, reduced in length, and/or combined with other modules: the module on shaping and chaining was deleted on the basis of feedback on training; and the two previous modules on problem solving were combined into one.
                        • Most modules have been refined and/or updated based on training feedback, including simplifying instructions to trainers and clarifying specific content points. References and examples were also updated, with up-to-date technology references and more emphasis on cultural diversity.
                        • Supervisor and direct support editions are included in one efficient curriculum.
                        • Contains a wide selection of activities to facilitate working with people with varying degrees of intellectual disability.
                        • Simple trainee activities make learning easier for staff.
                        • The curriculum can be taught in only two-and-a-half days of classroom. training for direct support staff and three-and-a-half days for supervisors.
                        • The loose-leaf curriculum is provided in an easy-to-use box, along with one copy of the Trainee Resource Guide and a CD of the PowerPoint slides. 

                         

                        The PBSTC Continues to Deliver

                        • A tested, stable, and successful source of positive behavior support strategies to reduce challenging behavior.
                        • Performance and competency-based curriculum requiring in-class activities, role plays, and on-the-job demonstration of skills.
                        • Training of supervisors on managerial duties, including staff observations, performance analysis, and evaluating PBS plans.
                        •  “Right out of the box” trainer curriculum that comes with activity sheets, skills checks, and PowerPoint slides.
                        • Extensive student and teacher interaction with enjoyable team activities.
                        • A proven way to build a culture of respect for people with intellectual disability.

                        Praise for the Curriculum

                        “The PBSTC is an excellent training tool. The Curriculum includes the acquisition and mastery of trainee performance skills that are essential to practicing PBS in work settings.”  
                        Carolyn Greene, School Administrator, J. Iverson Riddle Developmental Center, North Carolina

                        "The PBSTC Curriculum provides a wonderful base of understanding for staff with no previous training or experience and enhances the skills of well-seasoned staff. The Curriculum is very well designed and is both teacher and student friendly. It is a succint program that allows ample student interaction and participation."
                        Donna Boyd, Tri-Developmental Center of Aiken County, South Carolina

                        “We are using the PBSTC as part of our pre-service training program and eventually all of our 600 employees will be trained with this Curriculum. The benefit to clients is the creation of a culture within our organization that treats people as individuals while setting a more supportive and caring environment. I have recommended without hesitation the PBSTC to my colleagues who espouse a PBS philosophy as well as those who are grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis.”

                              This goal of this compelling book is to broaden our understanding of the process and construct of advocacy—particularly advocacy that changes policies and practices affecting the lives of people with disabilities and their families. Dr. Rich analyzes a series of interviews with a cross-section of intellectual disability (ID) advocates at the local, state, and national level. The reader will gain fresh insights into a variety of views and experiences of ID advocacy through the eloquent words of all those interviewed. In the words of one individual, “Do not forget the moral dimension of this work.”

                              Professionals and students in all areas of the field, including self-advocates, will find this book both thought-provoking and helpful in making a positive difference in the lives of the individuals and families they serve. In the words of another advocate interviewed, “Build strong relationships. See other people’s point of view. Spread your message evenly, know your audience, and listen.”
