Therapeutic Alternatives in Crisis Training (TACT)


The “Developmental Disabilities Individual Budgeting Waiver Services Coverage and Limitations Handbook Providers” states that all providers that must intervene in behavioral emergency situations (e.g. when recipients exhibit aggression, self-injury, property destruction, etc.), are required to be trained to competency in an agency approved crisis management procedure consistent with Chapter 65G-8, F.A.C. This standard also applies to providers of Behavior Analysis, Behavior Assistant, and other services if working with individuals with significant behavioral challenges.
