Therapeutic Unit for Behavior

  • PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    To ensure that all students have the opportunity to access educational services in the most appropriate and least restrictive environment, Hillcrest provides a Therapeutic Unit for Behavior program.  This program is designed for students who have cognitive and/or developmental disabilities concurrent with the exhibition of moderate to severe maladaptive behaviors including, but not limited to, self-injury, physical aggression and potentially unsafe behaviors such as elopement or property destruction.  Students in this program demonstrate significant difficulties with functional and effective communication, sensory processing, acquisition of social and daily living skills and emotional self-regulation.  Teachers in this program work closely with the district Behavior Support Team (BST).  The ultimate goal for all students in the T.U.B. program is learn, and other consistently demonstrate appropriate behavior and sensory self-regulation techniques in order to transition from a T.U.B. classroom into a less restrictive classroom environment.
