Getting It Right: Instructor Training
Getting it Right is an NC approved alternative to physical interventions curricula meeting all mandated general statutes and State rules concerning alternatives to physical interventions.
Getting it Right is a positive, person-centered approach focusing on providing a higher quality of support that seeks to prevent and avoid situations where restrictive or physical interventions may be used. The concepts and techniques reduce instances of challenging behaviors and help increase the overall quality of life of persons with a disability through superior and intense training that does NOT include physical restraints but rather a positive approach to supporting those with disabilities.
The Getting it Right: Alternatives to Restrictive Interventions curriculum represents a “best practices” approach to helping support staff gain the skills and knowledge necessary for successfully supporting and providing the best quality of life for persons they are paid to support.
The curriculum content is highly interactive and contains exercises designed to assist the training participants in understanding the critical role they play in the lives of persons they support. Getting it Right is in a user-friendly format with overheads/Powerpoint slides and exercises, ensuring that the trainer covers all state mandated competencies within the 12 hour curriculum. Instructor candidates must attend both the initial class and the instructor training. The fee for instructor training includes the cost of the initial class. Attendance in the instructor class alone does NOT guarantee approval to teach the curriculum. Instructors must be able to meet the minimum standards set forth by DHHS and the authors of Getting it Right. The presentation is designed to acquaint the training participants with important concepts as well provide them opportunities to apply these concepts to their lives and the lives of the persons they support. Bright Ideas will provide the support necessary and work with all candidates to ensure they can meet the necessary skill set to teach the material to State Standards.
