The Early Childhood Committee of the Scott County Community Foundation and United Way of Scott County invites all early childhood providers and educators to attend a roundtable session on “Crisis Prevention Training: Handle situations in a safe and secure manner!”. The event will feature guest speaker Sherry Stout, the Behavior and Autism consultant and Crisis Prevention Institute instructor for Scott County School District 2.

This session will be held Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 4-5 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center. Refreshments will be served, and the session is free.

Sherry is a lifelong resident of Scott County and the mother of three children. Before coming to SCSD2, she was the teacher of emotional disabilities, emotional disabilities consultant and orthopedic impairment consultant at Bradie Shrum Elementary in Salem.

SCSD2 uses the Crisis Prevention Institute’s model for behavior interventions and de-escalation techniques. CPI was established in 1980 and is the leading training organization that specializes in the safe management of disruptive and assaultive behavior.

The early childhood provider roundtables give educators the opportunity to learn and network with others. Registration for this event can be made by calling 812-752-2057 or emailing info@scottcountyfoundation.org.
