In this Unit we will cover:
Providing Behavioral Supports
First things first, You may think you are the realest. . . but here is what not to do when providing behavioral supports
Really Try Not To. . .
1. Use loud voices 2. Use negative statements 3. Take away preferred or comfortable materials 4. Use physical redirection 5. Use an agry tone and/or body language 6. Use punishements
Try these strategies instead. .
1. Meet the students needs. 2. Using a calm approachable voice. 3. Look at what is going on in the classroom (Climate, community, etc.) 4. Build relationships with your students 5. Create saftey and trust 6. Have open communication (in multiple ways; drawing, speaking, writing, etc.)
Discipline is the problem not the solution. We want our students to become deep thinkers, problem solvers, and to overall be successful. It's important to think about how you react before you react, and the impact that your reaction will have on that child in the long run.
