School-Based Intervention Idea from


Have the Student Participate in Creating a Behavior Plan  (Walker, Colvin, & Ramsey, 1995)

Students can feel a greater sense of ownership when they are invited to contribute to their behavior management plan.

Students also tend to know better than anyone else what triggers will set off their problem behaviors and what strategies they find most effective in calming themselves and avoiding conflicts or other behavioral problems.
