Steps taken to address inappropriate behavior: Our employees are trained to implement corrective actions (in the order detailed below) when possible and reasonable. This policy affords parents an opportunity to correct the inappropriate behaviors, allowing the child to continue to participate in the program. While we normally employ corrective measures in order (one to five), we reserve the right to enact a measure commensurate to the offense. 15 1) Communicate Appropriate Behavior: A staff member will communicate appropriate behavior to the participant. The participant will convey to the staff the appropriate behavior required and will be told the consequences of the inappropriate behavior should it continue. 2) Quiet Time: If inappropriate behavior continues, a staff member will have the participant go to a designated personal space area for five to ten minutes prior to rejoining the group. The staff member will reiterate the desired behavior and further consequences should the behavior continue, and allow the child to return to the group. 3) Inappropriate Behavior Tracking Form: If a behavior concern is identified, a staff member will track the participant’s behavior(s). Measures needed to assist in correcting the behavior and future consequences, should the behavior continue, will be communicated to the parent/guardian. 4) Parent/Guardian Conference: If a behavior concern is identified and documented three or more times, a parent conference will be required for the participant to return to the program. The conference is mandatory to ensure consistency, follow-through and cooperation among staff, participant and parent/guardian. 5) Suspension: The steps listed above are used to correct behavior(s) in most cases. If they are unsuccessful, the participant will be suspended from the program.
