Spectrum Consulting Services Utilizes Calm Every Storm Curriculum For Over A Decade
CCG has always been a big fan of SCS, and now after 10 years– we are even bigger fans! Spectrum CEO and Founders reached out to CCG over decade ago showing interest in our de-escalation and intervention training. After figuring out a game plan, CCG Master Instructors traveled up to Lorain, OH and delivered large group style courses over a period of a few days. At that time there were only a handful of folks gaining certification, though over the years since the company has grown to be one of the largest and most widely recognized leaders providing educational services to youth k-12 who fall on the autism spectrum. In the last few years SCS went from repeatedly bringing in CCG to provide direct to staff training, to now building their own team of Certified CES Trainers on staff to deliver the curriculum independently each year. We continue to be grateful for the opportunity to serve Spectrum and help empower both the staff and youth they serve to better handle crisis situations and resolve difficult situations when they arise! Here’s to another decade!
More information about Spectrum Consulting Services:
Spectrum Consulting Services was founded in 2004 in Lorain, Ohio by two grassroots community activists, Cheryl Weber and Christine Reed. Christy and Cheryl were brought together by a common belief that many youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders lacked meaningful and functional academic programming that leads to successful citizenship.
Determined to make a difference, Weber and Reed convened a series of community meetings with social service providers, business leaders, and concerned parents. Awarded state approval for becoming an Autism Scholarship Provider in 2006, Cheryl and Christy opened the Spectrum Resource Center & School program and have over the years forged strong partnerships with many school districts, social service agencies, and other youth serving organizations in Lorain County and beyond. Since its inception, Spectrum Consulting Services through its affiliate programs has served over 300 youth and continues to expand its scope of services to meet the ever increasing needs of the community.
