Angel Sweet, Behavior Intervention Specialist - 2011
As a SCIP-R instructor, Angel has been able2 positively influence staff training during class and while supporting people in their homes or program. Her trainings have brought additional insight to the development and implementation of Behavior Support Plans. Angel’s relationships with psychiatric providers have been a positive bridge in assisting the people we support to receive meaningful services both during appointments and while at home. Her willingness to be “present” when needed is valued by individuals, staff and families. When Angel enters a room she brings a sense of fun and positivity. Her smile and her laughter are contagious, and can often help to distract an individual or co-worker who may be having an “off” day. She is a go-to person for many for support, ideas, and assistance.
