So proud!!! His first Star Student of the week award!! We had an IEP meeting yesterday and all his teachers said what an amazing job he has been doing lately. I usually stress out while in those meetings because they're always negative. This time his teachers said they've noticed a big change in Ryan, he's been more focused, positive, not refusing work and even helping other students. Yay!!!
We even worked on changing his behavior chart, so that he is more involved and aware of his goals in order to be able to circle a pokemon on his chart. We created a token sheet that he designed. During the course of a lesson, he will be rewarded up to 5 tokens to basically just keep him motivated and reinforce him for even the small positive behaviors he shows. When he gets 5 tokens in a lesson, he gets to circle a pokemon on his chart. The pokemons add up to a reward he has chosen.
I know its the end of the year, but we are both feeling positive about the rest of the school year and I know he will finish strong! Lisa Nicoll
