STAR Program-EBD

CCC S.T.A.R. program is designed to integrate behavioral, social, and academic supports for students that have been unsuccessful in an inclusion setting. Students have demonstrated a need for a high level of support that includes a structured routine with consistent expectations and follow-through. Special education, behavior, and clinical supports are incorporated to help students develop coping skills with the goal of returning to a less restrictive setting. This program serves as an extension of the CCC Waypoint Academy in Bourne. The program incorporates a framework of a positive and supportive school environment.

Staff are trained in de-escalation techniques and focus on helping children develop trusting relationships with peers and adults. Collaboration with community agencies is incorporated to support home/school communication. The program incorporates a level system based on five points of respect: Self, Peers, Adults, Personal Space, and Materials/environment. Each point has a minimum of 10 check-in opportunities within the school day building to a possible 50 points/day. This provides ongoing reinforcement and facilitation for interactions through the student’s day. A token economy system is also built into the program system. The teaching of emotional/behavior regulation is embedded within the program protocols. Consultation with social worker, behaviorist, occupational therapist and speech therapists builds teaching of regulation and social skills.
