Mission Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2015

For 40 years Jay Nolan Community Service (JNCS) has provided a myriad of support services, and thousands of opportunities for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities to live as independently as possible. Over the decades, the look of that support has changed, but the mission has remained the same. Treat people with dignity and respect, listen to their choices, and it’s much easier to develop healthy relationships where all people can flourish.

The Mandt System is a two-day employee certified training that is required for all JNCS staff. It outlines strategies for keeping supported individuals clear of the antecedents and triggers that may upset them, demonstrates how to honor their right to be heard, and provides tools for direct support professionals to develop healthy relationships that make people feel safe.

Just as important, direct support professionals are provided with skills to recognize when people do not feel safe, and to anticipate any unexpected a danger that may cause someone to escalate. Both the priority and the outcome are that the people we support feel safe, both emotional and physically. JNCS offers a variety of proven tools to help direct support professionals develop healthy environments that empower people to realize the confidence to achieve goals.

JNCS wants to change people’s perspective when working with individuals with different abilities. One way is to look behind the behavior. When behavior is viewed as a form of communication, ask yourself, what is he or she really trying to tell me?
