These three topics are combined within a single training session

Rights training introduces participants to 34-B MRSA 5601-5610, which describes the rights of Maine citizens with intellectual disabilities and/or autism.  Direct support professionals and others supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities must be familiar with these rights, both to ensure they are honored and to support the person to know them.

Behavior Regulations training explains Maine’s Regulations Governing Emergency Interventions and Behavioral Treatment for People with Mental Retardation and/or Autism.  These regulations govern the use of emergency interventions and behavioral treatment in a manner consistent with maximizing the safety, well-being, independence, and inclusion of Maine citizens with mental retardation or autism.

Reportable Events training reviews Maine’s regulations regarding mandated reporting in Developmental Services.  It covers Reportable Events Procedures, what constitutes a reportable event, and the requirements and process for filing Reportable Events impacting individuals with intellectual disabilities.
