We know behavior:

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.



Brain storming
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.”




Possible conclusions
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
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?
