Data Driven Collect baseline data Use data to drive decision Limit what you are collecting data on Keep it simple
Input Collaborate with regular education teachers What are their concerns? What is most pressing of their concerns? When? Where? Why? Be cognizant of the teachers feelings
Degree of Misbehavior Does the behavior impede learning? Annoying Disruptive Destructive Where does it happen, where does it not happen Safeguard student, other students, and staff
Function Avoid something Work Environment Interaction Frustration Negative personal feelings Get something Attention Control Power Relieve feelings of inadequacy

Components of a plan KISS-Keep It Simple Silly Choose 2-3 things to work on at a time Match data collection to intervention plan Do FBA Do task analysis Compliance before academics No power struggles Fluidity Its not my way or the highway Give student choices and some control
It is not about fair or equal! It is about what each child needs.
Is the plan being implemented? Any one doing it? Everyone doing it? Copies of behavior plan/interventions to everyone who needs it. If wont or cant; why? Are additional resources needed? Fluidity
Is the plan implemented correctly? Consistent Concise Simple Modeling (Capacity building) Training Data collection Timely Accurate
Is the Reinforcement appropriate? Positive behavior supports Consequences Reinforcement inventory Based on interests Something the child is willing to work for. Clearly defined Contracts Sentence strips
Does the Reinforcement schedule need to be changed? Reinforcement frequency Start more frequent Then fade Varying levels of reinforcement Buy back

Data Collecting Progress monitoring Valid Reliable Fidelity of data
Data, what does it tell me? Review the data Regular collection Missing data Evaluate/ analyze data Look for patterns Corrections that need to be made
How long has the plan been in place? Extinction burst Give it time to work Honeymoon period Things will get worse before they get better
Extinction Burst It gets worse before it gets better!
Feeling Frustrated! Breathe Reevaluate Make changes as needed Talk to someone Things will get better Cheerlead Remember: This too shall pass.
