This new course will expand on the supervisory skills that are trained. This training is based on the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) Supervisor Training Curriculum: Evidence-Based Ways to Promote Work Quality and Enjoyment among Support Staff authored by the Habilitative Management Consultants group (Reid, Parsons, and Green). The curriculum will be modified to focus on examples directly relevant for promoting PBS (e.g., clearly specifying staff performance expectations commensurate with PBS practices, objectively monitoring and evaluating staff work behavior in ways acceptable to staff, practical ways for reinforcing and supporting staff PBS practices, overcoming problematic staff performance that conflicts with PBS values). The training will consist of two days of classroom training and one day of on-the-job training to ensure transfer of selected supervisory skills addressed in the classroom training to the trainees’ actual work site in accordance with the AAIDD Supervisor Training Curriculum process
