(Continued from Script 1) It’s two weeks into Quan’s new behavior plan.  Mr. Hart, the counselor, meets with him in his office for their twice-daily check-in.  Mr. Hart pulls up today’s behavior log for Quan on Kickboard.

The Script – Ready For You To Use and Make Your Own

Mr. Hart:  Quan, how did your afternoon go?  Were you able to use that 3-2-1 strategy we learned at all?

Quan:  Well, I had a few problems with interrupting Mr. Pi during the Math game. But then, I remembered what you taught me and tried it out.  So after that, I got $4 for self-control!

Mr. Hart: I see that here in Kickboard.  So far today, you’ve had 24 behaviors logged. You’ve had only 3 incidents of disturbing learning BUT you had 2 incidents of self-control. High-Five, my man!  That’s progress!  Let’s look at your progress chart and see how you’ve done the last few weeks.

Mr. Hart switches views to show Quan’s intervention plan progress graph.

Quan: (beaming) It’s going up!

Mr. Hart: That’s right!  You’ve had a few ups and downs, see here? But overall, you’re on track for making your goal of +$4 a day.  Now, tell me WHY.

Quan:  Because I’ve been using that 3-2-1 strategy for thinking before I say something out loud.  It’s helped me a lot. I still goof up some but I’m getting better.

Mr. Hart:  Progress, not perfection, Quan. I’m proud of you!

Mr. Hart then clicks the RTI triangle icon next to Quan’s name in Daily Activity to record time spent on the intervention and a few anecdotal notes.
