In part 1 of proactive strategies, I will share the first 3 supports and strategies we are using! In this session, we will review using rubrics, rate of responding, frequency count, and tracking prompt levels to take data on both basic and more complex academic skills. I will continue the list of supports my team and I are using with caregivers, parents, and our learners. A proactive approach to developing strategies concentrates on planning for the future. However, the opposite happens in a reactive strategy. We will discuss methods of organizing your data so you can access it readily. I have two sets of token boards in the remote setting. Solving Classroom Challenges Using Positive Reinforcement & Executive Functioning Skill Building, Adapted Books: a Literacy Based Solution for Engaging IEP Instruction, Creating a Communication-Rich Environment for Your Preschoolers to Improve Literacy and Independence, Using Your Academic Data to Making Curricular Decisions, Using Organization and Structure to work with Individuals with Disabilities, Data Collection: Making it Easy and Useful, Literacy Instruction for Children with Autism, Reducing Problem Behavior Using Function Based Interventions, Behavior Change – the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Seven Steps for Setting Up a Stellar Autism Room. Is the work or work process beyond your child’s skill level or is the motivation to complete the task not there?

Use this information to select an appropriate and effective intervention. In this session learn how to organize, setup, and structure your adult day program classroom. The first thing we do is find out what will motivate our learners. We will explore specific strategies and examples of how to create visuals, teach appropriate use, and utilize on a daily basis. After collecting the data, then you need to use it! I can play, pause, and talk through what I am doing, why I am doing it, and what my son is doing. Proactive strategies are essentially those strategies that are used by companies to anticipate the future requirements or potential challenges and threats of a company, and to take steps to cater to these needs and threats before they are actually experienced. The third strategy we use are token boards. We live in a rule-driven world yet so often our children and adults lack the understanding of these guidelines. Learn how to work with your staff so data is taken consistently across all areas of your classroom! We will discuss scheduling, grouping students, training paraprofessionals, and more! Fluency is accuracy plus speed and is a must-have when it comes to making the skills we teach functional in the real world. An adapted book is any book that has been modified in some way that makes it more accessible. Some of my learners are beginning to increase the frequency of biting, hitting, running away, crying, laying on the floor, pressing the end button on the iPad to leave a meeting, dropping, or their closing eyes. This is when reactive strategies are used by organizations. In part 1 of proactive strategies, I will share the first 3 supports and strategies we are using! Aggression and other problem behaviors can be the biggest obstacle to running a successful classroom. On the other hand, reactive strategies are those that companies use as a reaction to an unforeseen event after it has taken place. My district is full remote right now and will continue to be until the data shows that it is safe to go back with an in-person model in any form. They are a huge part of my team meeting conversations and we are all seeing a decrease in attention to the devices. As an example, your child many not understand why they have to go to school every weekday, except on the fourth Monday of each month, when there are parent-teacher conferences. By creating schedules, calendars, using timers or even simply listing your child’s daily activities you may be able to eliminate some of the unneeded frustration in your child’s life. When we were in the classroom, I would be able to share videos, pictures, and send home visuals and other strategies that have been working in the classroom to help carryover the positive behaviors in the home. The second way is working on managing behaviors. The day begins with an in-depth look at the importance of building vocabulary for all preschoolers. Your email address will not be published. The remote control access over the video call does not always work, which at that point I will put the star on the board for the learner. In such situations, rapid response is required, and proactive planning is not helpful. Any model that a school district may be following includes more and more changes. In such situations, companies need to react rapidly to minimize the losses and damages. In this session learn how to organize, setup, and structure your classroom. A reactive organization does not formulate plans for the future. Learn how to implement fluency instruction in your classroom with this interactive workshop. Can the learner delay gratification? Students with autism are all so different and have a vast array of needs. Working with the adult population can be very challenging. Make it Fast! This is a great way for me to model the expectations of the adults and caregivers. When we find that a current reinforcer isn’t doing what a reinforcer should be doing, we find new ones using the preference assessment. Strategy formulation vs strategy implementation, Human resource management vs strategic human resource management, Free on board (FOB) vs cost, insurance, freight (CIF), Strategies used to anticipate future events in the market, Strategies used to deal with events after they have occurred, Used on threats, opportunities and challenges that are expected to take place in the future, Applicable on events that take place in the present. When the industry is competitive, this may decrease the company’s share in the market, while also negatively affecting the growth of the company. This is where reactive strategies come into play, as explained subsequently. For children with autism who may struggle with receptive language processing, schedules are even more important. When a behavior is all done, we of course try again. In this full day workshop, we will explore methods to increase vocabulary, literacy skills, independence, and communication skills in your preschool students! The first thing we do is find out what will motivate our learners. Just like we would in person with our learners, we stay calm, use minimal vocal language, encourage, and wait for the families to follow through. In the remote setting, my team and I are relying on our learner’s families to carry out the use of reinforcers, AND share with us what are true motivators for their child. Such strategies allow companies to formulate their own decisions instead of reacting out of necessity under circumstances that are probably not in their control. If families voice concerns about the decrease in positive behaviors, or the increase in negative behaviors, we want to help them right away. Behavior Contingency Maps show a visual representation of everyday rules. We do this when we get a new student, and occasionally each week. We will review instructional planning, activity ideas, and specific interventions. It can be tricky to navigate the often under-funded world of adult education in a way that is helpful and age appropriate for our adults. In this session, we will discuss a multitude of interventions for each type of behavior. The concepts can be applied to a wide range of environments. Sharing videos of my son engaging in similar behaviors. Effective use of schedules can increase functional independence and decrease negative behaviors and anxiety. Behavior Contingency Maps show a visual representation of everyday rules. In this presentation we will go through a variety of instructional techniques, program goals, and material suggestions for language arts and math instruction. A reactive strategy is one in which problems are handled after they have taken place. Sometimes, unanticipated problems are experienced by organizations, which may be internal or external to the organization. It’s a daunting task to create an environment that is meaningful and engaging. Increased vocabulary will lead to more advanced reading skills in early elementary and overall school achievement.
