Social Skills Story

Hello school psych, counselor and teacher friends, I wonder if people would be willing to give me some feedback. I have a number of children’s stories that I am writing (social skills, coping skills, etc). Would any of you be willing to read one of my stories and let me know what you like or dislike about the content? If people find value in these, I will format them, do the artwork better and put them on my Teachers Pay Teachers page. Feel free to download, read and share, but please let me know what you like or dislike. Thanks! Once you download the PDF, click “rotate view” in your PDF viewer so you can read it in landscape format.

Behavior Assessments

A number of people have asked about conducting Functional Behavior Assessments and writing Behavior Plans.  I’ve attached a procedural manual that I wrote based on literature and web site reviews.  It contains ideas for data collection, assessment procedures, example forms, graphing samples and resources.  Creating the manual was a big undertaking, but helped me “own” the process  little more and consider additional ideas.  I urge all practitioners involved in this process to read and come up with a process that works best for you, your team of teachers and most of all your students and their families.

I’ve also uploaded a graphing example for creating graphs from some of the forms referenced in the document (using Excel). Once you create a graph, you can copy and paste it into a word document.
