Then asked class to stand on the agree side if their paper said agree and disagree side if their paper said disagree. Then they discussed the reasons. Reason: youth were not moving or would only move if their peers moved; gave them the opportunity to see how many people in the class agreed or disagreed with a statement without singling out individual young people.

19 Steps to keep in mind Use the correct fidelity checklist: Mark the fidelity list as a Master list (agency/date)Sample: Adaptation Master List - FIDELITY CHECKLIST CAMBA (11/13) Be specific in describing the modification Explain why you are making the change Mark it as approved (last column: Yes) Submit to Jutta for approval before implementing

20 Summary Adaptations are unavoidable, even needed → plan ahead A master list will simplify the paperwork (less writing)and direct educators to make the same changes It documents your changes correctly → improves evaluation reports It saves time! Remember to send it to the COE for review
