Stride receives BILD accreditation
After months of hard work on developing our positive behaviour programme we are very pleased to announce that the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD) has accredited our training services as complying with best practice in physical intervention.
Stride is a programme which offers support and training in behaviour management where the individual remains at the centre of the process. The strategies and interventions use evidenced-based practice and are centred in Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). PBS is based upon the principle that if you can teach someone a more effective and more acceptable behaviour than the one of concern, the challenging behaviour will reduce.
The Stride approach to positive behaviour support is a flexible model which is focused on the needs of the individual whose behaviours are of concern, whatever their age or the context they are in. It is a modular approach where participants will develop the appropriate skills and knowledge required to best support the needs of the individual and enables them to progress and access high quality life experiences. Stride is strongly routed in the BILD Code of Practice (2014) and positive behaviour support principles, where the ‘story of behaviour’ is a key to unlocking best practice.
The curriculum is designed around a core day which introduces restrictive physical interventions (RPI) in a context of positive behaviour support, outlines best practice and ensures all participants are aware of the law and risks around its use.
In addition to the core training there are optional modules designed to support you with the specific needs of children and adults in your setting. Our experienced team will work with you to develop a bespoke programme, which can include modules on: autistic spectrum disorder, Down’s Syndrome, ADHD and SEMH. All Stride trainers have undertaken our rigorous instructor course.
