Crisis Plan for the School


New Member
This goes hand-in-hand with the behavior contract, if and when it escalates. This was actually something I wrote and implemented at my difficult child's school and kept as it worked (saw it work first hand unfortunately) and have seen it work with other teams I am a part of in my job. Again, feel free to modify it as you see fit.
