  1. The At-Risk Student: Special Education Services: Looking deeper: accommodations and supports Good teaching

  2. Tier 2: Behavior/Academic Interventions • Strategies or techniques • designed to teach a new skill • build fluency in a skill • to encourage application of a skill a student has to a new situation

  3. Who needs Tier 2? • Student “at risk” for academic or behavior concerns • Universal supports/good teaching is not enough • Monitoring needed • Catch ‘em before a crisis

  4. Tier 2 Key concepts: • Preventative • Targeted (but not individualized) • Improved structure, predictability and routine • Generalizable to new situations • Positive • Supports classroom teacher

  5. Tier 2 builds on your effective classroom practices: • Clearly defined expectations and rules • Clearly defined procedures and routines • Continuum of strategies • Acknowledge appropriate responses • Respond to inappropriate responses • Active supervision • Multiple opportunities to respond Choices • Opportunities for success

  6. Tier 2 Examples: • Check in/Check out • Small group social skill building • Group counseling • Mentoring programs

  7. Check-in Check-out (CICO) • Remember “Anderson Elementary”? • Be safe • Be responsible • Be respectful

  8. Major Features of Targeted Interventions • Intervention is continuously available • Very low effort by teachers • Consistent with school-wide expectations • Implemented by all staff/faculty in a school • Home/school linkage • Flexible intervention based on assessment • Student chooses to participate

  12. Daily Progress Report

  13. Why does CICO work? • Improved structure • Prompts throughout the day for correct behavior. • Links student with at least one positive adult. • Student chooses to participate. • Student is “set up for success” • First contact each morning is positive. • First contact each period is positive, and sets up successful behavioral momentum. • Increase in contingent feedback • Feedback occurs more often. • Feedback is tied to student behavior. • Inappropriate behavior is less likely to be ignored or rewarded.

  14. Why does CICO Work? • Program can be applied in all supervised school locations • Elevated reward for appropriate behavior • Adult and peer attention delivered each target period • Adult attention (and tangible) delivered at end of day • Linking school and home support • Provide format for positive student/parent contact • Program is organized to morph into a self-management system • Increased options for making choices • Increased ability to self-monitor performance/progress

  15. Logistics for Setting up a CICO program • Faculty and staff commitment • Is problem behavior a major concern? • Are staff willing to commit 5 min per day? • Is CICO a reasonable option for us? • More than 5 students need extra support • CICO is designed to work with 10-12% of kids in a school • CICO typically “works” with 67% of students. • CICO does NOT replace need for individualized supports.

  16. Logistics for Setting up a CICO program • School-wide PBS in place • School-wide expectations defined and taught • Reward system operating • Clear and consistent consequences for problem behavior • Process for identifying a student who may be appropriate for CICO • Student is not responding to SWPBS expectations • Student finds adult attention rewarding • Student is NOT in crisis.

  17. Logistics for Setting up a CICO program • Daily CICO progress report card • Same expectations for all • Common schedule • All staff taught rules for accepting, completing and returning the card. • Home report process • Can be same as progress card • Can be a unique reporting form

  18. CICO Home Report Name: _____________________________ Date: _____________ ______ I met my goal today ______ I had a hard day One thing I did really well today was:_______________________ Something I will work on tomorrow is: _______________________ Comments: Parent/Guardian Signature: ________________________________________________________ Comments:

  19. Logistics for Setting up a CICO program • Trading menu • Reward for collecting and turning in daily progress card • Reward for meeting daily goal • Exchange system for points earned • Collecting, summarizing and using data • Daily updates • Weekly review by team • Refer for tier 3 if necessary 28

  20. At the top of the triangle… “Level 3” Intensive supports (5%) Individualized, targeted supports Functional Behavior Assessment Behavior Support Plan

  21. You can see a lot by looking~yogi berra • • Video 1: What do you see?

  22. FromFunctional Behavior Assessment (FBA) toPositiveBehavior Support Plan Featuring… a little guy named “Brendan”

  23. Steps of an FBA to lead to PBSP: • Describe and verify the seriousness of the problem • Refine the definition of the problem behavior • Collect information on the possible functions of the problem behavior • Analyze the information • Generate an hypothesis about the function of the problem behavior • Test the hypothesis • Develop a plan

  24. Who’s involved? • Informal FBA: • Teachers and staff • Indirect/Simple FBA: • Teachers/staff and School Specialist • Complex FBA: • Teachers/staff, School Specialist and Behavior Specialist • Always with Parental Consent!

  25. When do we need to conduct an FBA? • IEP team decision • Manifestation of a student’s disability • When student is referred to law enforcement • When a student is removed from his/her current placement • Weapons violation • Drug possession/use • Bodily injury • Suspension without manifestation of disability

  26. Describe and verify the seriousness of the problem • • Getting started: • Brendan’s Functional Assessment interview

  27. Refine the definition of the problem behavior • Brendan is aggressive • Clarify! • Brendan misbehaves in public • Clarify! So Grandma can see it!

  28. Collect information on the possible functions of the problem behavior • Brendan’s observation cards •

  29. “What is he doing THAT for?” • Change our focus from what to why • “WHY does the child need to do this?” • Escape/avoid • Attention/access • Combination! • Communication • All behavior serves a purpose!

  30. And after we know “WHY”… • We look at replacing the inappropriate behavior with a more suitable behavior that serves the same function (or results in the same outcome) as the problem behavior

  31. Analyze the information • Generate an hypothesis about the function of the problem behavior • Brendan’s hypothesis statements

  32. Why should Brendan change his behavior? • students will change the inappropriate behavior only when it is clear to them that a different response will more effectively and efficiently accomplish the same thing!

  33. Test the hypothesis • Develop a plan • Steps to Developing and Implementing a Behavior Support Plan

  34. Brendan’s behavior support plan • Review and revise as needed •

  35. Informal…Case Study: "Blue Ink Line" • The Incident • Background Information

  36. Remember: “An ounce of prevention is…” • What would be your “Ten Commandments” of managing a crisis?

  37. Your Task • Read the Incident • No FBA yet: act fast! • Think about your immediate intervention; • How would you ensure physical safety? • How would you attend to the emotional well-being of those most centrally involved? • How would you return the setting to order and peace?

  38. Ensuring Physical Safety: • Preventing a crisis: • An ounce of prevention… • Teacher tension can often make it worse • Always remain calm • Lower your voice • Slow your rate of speech • Arrange your environment to eliminate risk

  39. Give the student space • Be aware of your body stance • Dress in a manner that minimizes injury risk • Remind students of consequences of misbehavior • Allow verbal venting • Ignore irrelevant comments. Redirect student to the problem at hand

  40. Provide choices • Set limits • Use physical restraint as a last resort • Once the situation is calm, use the incident to teach alternative appropriate ways to deal with aggression.

  41. Long-Term Intervention • Make a decision as to whether to act further • Do you need to promote a lasting, positive behavior change? • Try this: role play the FBA interview

  42. Steps to Long-Term Intervention: an Informal FBA • Assess the problem: • What’s the behavior you want to target? • What are the antecedents? Consequences? Settings? • When/where is the behavior most likely to occur? When/where is it least likely? • What information can you gather from the family?

  43. Formulate objectives of intervention • What is your team’s hypothesis? • When this happens (antecedent)____, Celia does this (behavior)___, in order to (get or avoid/function) this___, and we should do this ______. • Plan an effective intervention • Implement the intervention • Evaluate the results, revise plan if needed.

  44. Why use visual strategies? • To help prevent problem behavior before it starts • To support and increase communication • To remind • They’re always there • Help kids know exactly what you expect • Teach routine • Work well with spoken/sign language • Just another cue!

  45. What is a Social Story? • A short story – defined by specific characteristics • Describes a situation, concept, or social skill • Uses a format that is meaningful for people with ASD or other developmental disabilities.

  46. What is a Social Story? • Goals: • renewed sensitivity of others to the experience of the person with ASD (or other disabilities), • Helps to develop “social cognition”

  47. Who Writes Social Stories? • Social Stories are written by people who work and/or live with people with ASD or other disabilities. • Some prewritten stories exist
