This update is a two-day program for current TCI certified trainers. The update provides materials to assist staff in adapting TCI skills for children and young people who have developmental disabilities such as autism, intellectual disabilities, or developmental delays. The material is designed to enhance the core TCI activities. Topics include: preventing aggression and violence, the hierarchy of communication, setting conditions and triggers, and adapting the LSI for young people with limited or no verbal communication skills.

DAY 1 explores how to prevent aggression and violence and how to apply the hierarchy of communication and behavior support strategies when using the LSI. Physical intervention techniques will be practiced for re-certification testing.

DAY 2 focuses on using a shortened LSI technique, an advocate LSI and the use of safety interventions with this population. All participants will be tested with written and competency based tests at the end of the day for re-certification.

Participants who successfully complete the update receive a TCI Developmental Disabilities reference guide, activity guide, student workbook, and a CD containing the PowerPoint™ presentation for use in their direct training.

• Identify and reduce environmental and personal setting conditions for challenging behavior
