STEP is an acronym for Supportive Teams for Educational Progress.
STEP is comprised of a group of specialized services that have been crafted with the goal of fostering student independence within the mainstream school environment. STEP offers a wide spectrum of services ranging from behavioral observation and teacher consultation to creation of full behavior support plans. The core of STEP is behavioral support for students. These services are created by the coordinators of the program and implemented by specially trained paraprofessionals.
