How are behaviors handled?
When behaviors occur we utilize positive behavior supports or a sensory/ quiet room.
What type staff support will be provided?
We are thrilled to have Cheryl Figliano as our Lead staff person who will be facilitating the J Squad and has over 30 years of experience as a special-needs educator. She has worked with students from preschool through high school. She currently is working in a life skills based program for students with multiple disabilities at the Bridgewater Raritan Middle School. In addition Cheryl is a parent of three children, two who have an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis. This gives her the very unique perspective of understanding home as well as educational needs. All of our staff must complete a background check and trainings before they are allowed to work in the program. We will also have volunteers who complete the background check and an orientation.
