Our foundation training course, 'Supporting Individuals in Distress,' covers what is needed for most people, however, some of those we support can fall outside the realms of standard training.
We can provide individualised consultancy around specific individuals and develop bespoke workshops, behaviour support plans, work 'hands on' with support staff to implement plans effectively and provide ongoing advice and support for your dynamic needs.
D.ESCAL8™ can work in all areas of education, health & social care with adults, young people and children.
We are proud to offer support to the following services:
D.ESCAL8™ perform Functional Behaviour Assessments to aid and inform consultancy.
A Functional Behaviour Assessment will provide the data needed to design a Behaviour Support Plan that is tailored to the individual.
At D.ESCAL8™ we are continually developing and improving our courses and processes based on the latest research, legislation and guidance.
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 Behaviour Assessment.
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
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!
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.
