BE SAFE - A TeachTown Video-Modeling Curriculum

BE SAFE is a curriculum to help teens and adults with moderate to severe disabilities learn how to interact appropriately with law enforcement, as well as how to handle emergency situations.

BE SAFE is a video-modeling curriculum for teens and young adults that utilizes evidence-based practices founded on the methodologies of applied behavior analysis (ABA). The solution provides each student with the appropriate skills necessary to respond to community officers and professionals safely and appropriately, ultimately increasing their safety, community integration and independence.

Be Safe TeachTown

BE SAFE includes comprehensive lesson plans that detail appropriate behaviors when interacting with police officers and other first responders. These lessons teach teens and young adults how to understand and obey commands from law enforcement. In addition, students also learn about laws and their rights, such as the right to remain silent. The data collection tool allows teachers to monitor the students’ acquisition of these vital safety skills.
