Most of the videos on this Roku chanel are introductory in nature and address issues involving special needs students including reprimanding a student, student safety and how to achieve behavioral goals. There are currently just 17 videos available, which are found in the following series (descriptions courtesy of PREP Group TV website):
- Quick Tips - These videos will give a quick overview of important concepts and ideas that may be useful to your student, client or child.
- In the Trenches: Intake and Initial Steps - This series will contain videos documenting one students journey during intake. At all other placements, this student was taught to self restrain. Our goal was to teach her self regulation and skills to ensure active engagement at school, her home and in the community.
- Academy - The PREP Academy offers teaching videos that help the audience learn a new topic or information source. They are 3-5 minutes in length and intended to teach a new concept or topic.
- In the Trenches - This series is full of action packed on the scenes work! You will get to observe real students and real interventions!
The channel is subscription-based, but you can browse the video library and watch video trailers without a subscription.
