D.ESCAL8™ provide a Consultancy Service for all aspects of
behaviour and human interaction.

What can D.ESCAL8™ provide?

Functional Behavioural Assessment

D8 provide individualised Functional Behavioural Assessments to aid and inform consultancy.

Person Centred Approaches

A Functional Behavioural Assessment will provide the data needed to design a Behaviour Support Plan that is tailored to the individual.

Research and Development

At D.ESCAL8™ we  are continually developing and improving our courses and processes based on the latest research, legislation and guidance.

Physical Skills

It is rare that additional physical elements are added to the Behaviour Support Plan (beyond those in our Foundation training). However, D.ESCAL8™ will design bespoke, professionally risk assessed physical skills if indicated by a comprehensive Functional Behavioural Assessment.

Restraint Reduction Network and BILD

Our foundation course, 'Supporting Individuals in Distress,' is certified to the Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards. Certification is administered by the British Institute of Learning Disabilities.  More Info

Service Level Agreement

Ongoing Organisation Support - After the initial training, customers can select various elements of the ongoing Service Level Agreement (SLA) that D.ESCAL8™ provide. This SLA gives the customer the option to choose from certain elements of support, such as:

The course was everything I expected and more. We have previously used a different company, however we decided to change providers because following the previous training, on the rare occasion a team member had needed to use the techniques, they had been unable to remember them. Following this course, all staff felt confident they would remember the procedures! This was mainly because they had actually practised all of the techniques during ‘as close to real life as possible’ role plays. I highly recommend this course!


you can take it anywhere

D.ESCAL8™ deliver courses and workshops based on human relationships. This grounding is not about hierarchy of those supported vrs those they support. D8 is about building and maintaining positive relationships even with people who cause you some stress. From feedback this can have a good effect on your own relationships.
