The Bridges Program: Promoting Home School Inclusion through a Continuum of Services.
Frey, Laura; Lane, Cindy
The Bridges Program of the Wyandotte Comprehensive Special Education Cooperative in Kansas works to have students with chronic aberrant behavior in alternative school settings function successfully in a self-contained setting in the student's home school. The program works to create an environment which will address the curriculum needs and emotional deficits of the student. Program staff cooperatively plan to "bridge" the student back to the home school, by working to develop and implement the placement plan, locate and network the student and family with community resources, support the student in the home school environment, and provide necessary support to the home school team. Team planning is documented through a "bridging plan" specifying target behaviors, criteria for success, and possible acceptable alternative behaviors. This document presents a sample form used in specifying target behaviors, an environmental analysis form, and a behavior checklist for the referring teacher. (JDD)
