Therapeutic Unit for Behavior

  • PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    In an effort to ensure that all students at Hillcrest School have an opportunity to access educational services in the most appropriate setting, the Exceptional Student Education Department created a Therapeutic Unit at Hillcrest for those students who need both intensive academic and behavioral supports.  The unit is staffed with a certified ESE teacher and two paraprofessionals. There is a classroom cap of 6 students to ensure therapeutic validity. The ESE Department’s Behavior Support Team supports teachers assigned to this unit by assisting with data collection and analysis, developing intensive behavior intervention plans, providing coverage when possible, and ensuring that all staff have access to professional development opportunities to further enhance their skills.
