Case studies: Low level behaviours
Tyler is out of his seat wandering around
The aims of this unit are:
- To introduce and use a ‘small steps’monitoring approach to improve Tyler’s levels of organisational skills.
- To return Tyler to settled ‘on task’behaviour.
- To introduce a simple reward and behaviour monitoring system to raise level of attainment and achievement.
Tyler participates quietly during the introduction and the lesson starter activities. When he is expected to sit and work independently he is constantly up and about, moving around the class.
He is back and forth looking for equipment, finding his books, sharpening pencils and dealing with a messy pen. Constantly on the move, his work output is always minimal.
