NWSRA Behavior Intervention Team

NWSRA is committed to making safety an integral part of an enjoyable recreation and leisure experience for all participants. In order to ensure safety and communication between all involved in each recreational experience, NWSRA has implemented the Behavior Intervention Team. The team is comprised of full time Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists & Certified Park and Recreation Professionals who train throughout the year on best practices to ensure that proper individualized attention is provided to meet the needs of each participant.

Behavioral intervention or individualized program support recommendations are based on the existing Fair Play at NWSRA process. Fair Play at NWSRA is a process which NWSRA uses to make recreation programs and services safe for all participants, and sets out the expectations for the conduct of participants with or without disabilities in a recreation program or access to a service provided by NWSRA.

Communication of systems or strategies used at home, in school, in workshops, or other settings is an integral step in creating a successful behavioral system.
