Agenda

  • Why do we need data?

  • Data Sources

  • Define the BIR

  • Explore the BIR

  • What does this data look like for you - activity


Ojectives

Participants will

  • Investigate the various data sources available for use

  • Determine how the BIR functions as a tool for staff to guide decisions on challenging behavior

  • Explore the function of the BIR as a Team


Challenging Behavior

What do you see?


Challenging Behavior


Challenging Behavior

  • Do we know?

  • We can guess?

  • How do we discover the true meaning of the child’s behavior?


Challenging Behavior

  • Observe and take anecdotal notes

  • Video tape

  • Tally sheet

  • BIR


Becoming a Detective

We know behavior:

  • is communication

  • serves a purpose

  • is a child’s best guess at problem solving


Becoming a Detective

In simple terms…

  • To get something

  • To escape something

  • To change a “state”


Becoming a Detective

  • Observe and take anecdotal notes

  • Video tape

  • Tally sheet

  • BIR

Exploring the BIR


Discovery??

DECEMBER

JANUARY

  • Total # of BIRs: 16

  • One teacher submitted thirteen BIRs.

  • Explore BIRs with the Core Leadership team;

    “What are the BIRs telling us?”

  • Total # of BIRs: 13

  • Increase to eight teachers submitting BIRs.

  • The “a-ha” moment! Using BIRs can help explore challenging behavior in different ways.


Analyzing January’s BIRs Data


Brain Storming

  • Increase of teachers submitting BIRs allowed team to look at what data the BIR had to offer in a different perspective.

  • Explore the following attributes: teacher(s), child(ren), location, activity.

  • Address the attitude of staff, “If I submit a BIR, I may not be doing my job.”


INCENTIVE IDEA!!


Analyzing February’s BIRs Data


Possible Conclusions

  • Teachers and staff need to feel safe to have the ability to submit BIRs.

  • Exploring hypotheses with the Core Leadership Team can allow for an objective perspective.

  • Discussing the hypothesis with staff should be done with active listening. Remember that all behavior is serving a purpose.

  • Remember to explore reasons and ask, “Why are the BIRs decreasing?”

  • Look at the BIR as a snapshot of the possibilities for challenging behavior.


Remember!!

  • Behavior serves a purpose…..

  • Become the detective and investigate:

    Is the behavior to obtain attention?

    Is the behavior to escape the activity?

    Does the behavior help to support a change in stimulation?

    • What do the three BIRs tell you about Justin?

    • What strengths does Justin have?

    • What behaviors does Justin need help with?

    • What other data would help?


Ojectives – a review

Participants will

  • Investigate the various data sources available for use

  • Determine how the BIR functions as a tool for staff to guide decisions on challenging behavior

  • Explore the function of the BIR as a Team
