At home we are working on Brooklyn's constant anxiety and I am even more focused on learning more after reading this incredibly insightful article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sophia-yin/owner-attacked-by-dog-and_b_4293988.html
At school, well it feels like that's all I do. Almost all of my consultations with teachers are behavior based, I am on the behavior support team, and I feel like most of my lunch time conversations are now about so and so's behavior. So, it's no surprise that I am always looking for more behavior resources. Here are two new websites I can't live without.
First is Intervention Central, a wonderful RTI resource.
This year we have been talking about behavior tier, 3 tiers in fact.
Here's an example:
One thing I love about this site is that it allows you to create you own intervention checklists. I think it's perfect for helping teachers incorporate Tier 1 strategies into their classroom. It also helps me know if the teachers have tried things such as daily schedules, changing seating arrangements, etc. before I go in.
You can personalize your checklist, which means you can personalize it for each of your consultations.
There are so many resources, the more I play with this site the more I find. Aps, articles, suggestions, tools to create behavior tracking charts, and more. So explore and share with me your favorite find.
The next website is one I am sure I have shared before, but I can't ever get enough. A good friend who is a school psychologist turned me onto it and I am forever grateful. It's PBIS World.
First pick a behavior that describes your student:
Next double check that really describes your student:
After you have tried the Tier 1 Strategies it also provides you with Tier 2 Strategies:
And if that wasn't enough it also gives you lots of tracking forms.
What more could a counselor ask for?
