“For us, it has brought awareness about the power we hold to de-escalate situations. We have a high autism population at our school. In the past, before CPI training, situations got out of control when they didn’t need to. Now, our staff is trained in how to approach a student before things get out of control.”
Erin Wise-Jones, PsychologistAdams 12 Five Star School District
