Behavioral Tools for Perfectionists' Meltdowns
Do you have students with autism who need to learn appropriate coping strategies to avoid overreacting if they make a mistake? Social stories, contingency maps, and size of my problem scales can help students learn better ways to manage their own behavior. This post describes these tools and how they can be used. via @drchrisreeve
Hall Pass - Print on card stock and put into ID badge holders on coil key chains (both from Walmart). Blank pass at end can be written on with a whiteboard marker and then erased (for students who have to go somewhere else in the building). These are waterproof (seal the top opening with packing tape or buy self-seal ID badge holders) and kids wear them high up on their arms so they don't get wet/dirty in the bathroom.
