Special Needs Transportation Training

Driver and monitor training built to support a positive student experience.

Effective Special Needs Transportation Training

Our drivers, attendants, and monitors receive comprehensive special needs training developed by leading experts in behavioral sciences. The multi-module training not only presents a set of guidelines, best practices, and tools, but also provides on-the-bus instruction to better equip our team for real-life scenarios.

Seven Hours of Specialized Training

Employees learn how to adapt and provide for individual needs, like verbal and nonverbal communication styles and positive strategies for addressing behavior.

Co-Developed with Behavioral Experts

Elements of our training program were co-developed with the #1 children’s hospital in the country, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Built for a Positive Student Experience

We’re dedicated to educating staff on characteristics of disabilities and how to address challenges, to ensure a safe and enjoyable bus ride for every student.
