Learning new skills both behaviorally and academically requires lots of teaching. We help
students by teaching and reteaching expectations, giving them feedback, and allowing an opportunity to redo a skill correctly while strengthening our relationship. When guiding students to improve behavioral skills, we also reflect on ways to prevent unexpected behavior. What routine or procedure do I need to reteach? Do I need to increase my active supervision? Am I acknowledging students frequently enough for showing the expected behavior?
Here at LSW, we are focusing on various prevention strategies to increase the likelihood of appropriate behavior.
