Project STAY (Supporting Teachers and Youth) is a multi-disciplinary team that consists of behavior analysts, a licensed clinical social worker, a certified regular and special education teacher, and a data collector.
Project STAY originated as a special education grant in 1995 to provide technical assistance to schools and families in Northeast Kansas. During this time, Project STAY field-tested a problem-solving model to be used with children exhibiting challenging behaviors. This problem-solving model includes functional behavioral assessment, family and school communication, academic curriculum assessment and development, learning strategies, and system analysis.
In 1998 the project was restructured. Currently, Project STAY is funded through a consortium of school districts and cooperatives in Northeast and Central Kansas, in addition to various grants from the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE).
Project STAY now provides direct, hands-on consultation to various school districts and coops in our consortium. The KSDE grant (TASN) also provides funding for family and school team trainings across the state. Project STAY also provides general consultation via the internet throughout the state of Kansas.
