Empowering a student to take control of their behaviour
Sincoln is a very independent pupil who thrives across all areas of the curriculum – from art and English through to cooking and the gym. This year a focus for him has been the establishment of a self-management behaviour programme.
Through the programme, which is being implemented at school and at home, Sincoln is learning different ways to behave in situations he doesn’t like or struggles to cope with. He uses a clicker to track behaviour as well as using sentences to ask questions during times he finds stressful. He logs all of this on a chart at the end of each day – allowing him a more creative way of visualising how he is making progress.
As his programme continues, more focus will be given to time spent out in the community to help him cope better with noises he doesn’t enjoy, such as sirens.
