    When a student is referred to Behavior Health Services, a behavior assessment is conducted to identify the student’s individual needs.SCSDB Health - Behavior Services Then a positive behavior support plan is developed to decrease disruptive behaviors and increase productive behaviors. 
    The positive behavior support plan is implemented through a team approach that includes teachers, counselors, psychologists, medical staff and residential staff as appropriate. A behavior interventionist may be assigned to the student for a portion of the day to help the student learn new skills and apply them to daily life. To determine if the plan is working, periodic follow-up assessments are conducted.


    Parents and families of students do not receive bills for behavior health services at the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind. The school is often able to receive reimbursements for these services through the SC Department of Health and Human Services “Partners for Healthy Children” program for Medicaid-eligible students.
