Justin Vizinau, our behavior support specialist, is key in the extra level of collaboration between all the team members involved in students’ treatment. He holds weekly, or biweekly meetings that include all key players for the student’s team. This ensures regular and consistent communication on student plans, updates on any significant events, and collaborative problem-solving regarding behaviors on campus. In his words, “The highlight of the Collab Model is getting to see everyone come together for the better of the client and seeing everyone’s voice and ideas incorporated into the planning and execution of plans”.
Clinicians Jamila Voltaire and Eddie Vasquez provide individual therapy, and consistent communication and collaboration with caregivers regarding student treatment. Eddie’s highlight for the Collab Model is “Collaborating with people that actually care about our students’ overall well-being makes Caliber a special place. I love working with all the individuals that support our students, and especially love working with our students.” Together the Seneca team helps build capacity of the campus community by providing valuable psycho-education regarding the internal working model of students, and best practices regarding behavioral interventions.
