Community-based instruction (CBI) teaches individuals with disabilities functional skills within community settings. The goal of CBI is to lead individuals with disabilities to independence. The Community-Based Instruction Training provides direct support professionals with the skills and knowledge needed to educate their clients through five modules. Topics for the training include (1) the history and background of disability and the community, (2) an explanation of community-based instruction, (3) how to identify CBI goals, (4) how to provide systematic instruction and response prompting, and (5) how to collect data and move forward.
This training will be coming in January 2023 and will be free of charge!
