    Teaching Authentic Cooking Skills to Adults With Inte...

    This remarkable book is a unique instructional tool with which
    direct support professionals and program directors can address two
    critical issues in working with adults with IDD: promoting healthy
    eating habits and teaching real-life skills that will develop greater
    independence and self-determination. Active Engagement is the
    program developed by the author and tested and proven through
    her years of teaching these skills successfully.

    Traditionally, people with IDD are the passive recipients of meals
    prepared by others. But everyone, regardless of ability level, should
    be able to make choices concerning the food they eat and to learn
    to prepare food – or to actively participate in preparing food – for
    themselves and others. Teaching these skills to adults with IDD
    requires a new instructional model, which this book provides.

    Active Engagement is based on a framework of good nutritional principles and evidence-based instructional practices, including individualization, direct instruction, and experiential learning. This is not a cookbook, although there are a number of adaptive recipes embedded as examples throughout.

    This book provides detailed information on the Active Engagement program and how to
    implement it, organized into the following topics:

        • Cooking as nutritional intervention
        • A teaching framework for cooking skills
        • Developing cooking instruction around the patterns of American consumption
        • Teaching basic skill sets with adaptive tools
        • A new approach to recipes
        • Appliances from the universal to the specialized
        • Exploring different contexts for the development of cooking skills
        • Supporting cooking skills with food skills

          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.

          Carolyn Greene, School Administrator, J. Iverson Riddle Developmental Center, North Carolina
