PADPro’s SELF-HELP ADVOCACY through RESPONSIVE PROGRAMMMING (S.H.A.R.P.) involves a combination of pro-active, reactive and interactive approaches by:
- Eliminating occurrences of inappropriate behavior before antecedents occur.
- Reducing occurrence by implementation of intervention plans and reinforcement.
- Replacing behaviors with skills and transforming them into productive activities. Self-help programs focus on the need and interest of the individual to acquire responsibility to one’s self and develop skills to prepare towards independence.
