Meet Jakob
  • 10 years old
  • loves food, wonder pets, Spongebob, computer and playing on playground
  • Non-verbal
  • Goes to school in a self-contained ASD classroom in an elementary building
  • Has made new friends in the Bulldog Buddy peer to peer program
how it all began
How It All Began…
  • The team was sinking

-Strong team, but scheduling difficulties

-Utilized Meeting Mechanics to create

a plan but had some bumps with implementing: over-reliance on computer

-Lack of consistency among staff

honoring the process
Honoring the Process…


  • Problem Identification

-Running Away: Physically leaving a work area within the classroom or running away from a direction given by an adult verbally or with a visual.

  • Problem Specification:

-ran away when ending preferred activity and asked to go to a non-preferred activity

-intensified when going from computer to any activity

-computer is highly preferred

-loves Spongebob and sings the song often

-when Jakob runs he seeks out tables (under, on top of) under blankets/shirts, chairs. Sometimes runs out of the room.

-loves his own reflection in glass/mirrors

-providing him with choices and movement have been successful interventions in the past.

-does not respond to time limits set

-made connections with Bulldog Buddies

-when work was taken to Jakob when he was under/on top of the table or covered in a blanket, he would complete the work

meeting mechanics1
Meeting Mechanics…
  • Brainstorm

-All Ideas Are Good Ideas

-Notice how this plan utilizes some of the ideas that were shared during brainstorming in a way that if they would have been used in isolation, would not have been as effective.

  • Clustering allowed us to take a look at Jakob’s classroom environment, his sensory needs and the peer to peer connections he was making.
  • The data drove our process

-Having all members of the team do an observation had a huge impact

  • Forced us to really look at the “problem” (running away) and shift to what our goal/outcome was (to complete the tasks on his schedule/mini-schedule)

  • ALL staff had to learn about the characters
  • Bikini Bottom
  • Spongebob works as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab
  • Mr. Krabs is the owner
  • Plankton is Mr. Krabs biggest rival
  • Plankton owns low rank restaurant The Chum Bucket
  • Plankton tries to steal Krabby Patty recipe

The Krabby Patty Connection…
  • Discovered Jakob likes the edible candy
  • This created a problem…how to utilize without going broke
  • Also gave us an opportunity to utilize components of the first plan that needed to be tweaked
  • Went from computer time to krabby patty time

The Krabby Patty Connection andJakob’s Mini-Schedule
  • To earn an edible Krabby Patty the rule is…

-Complete all of the tasks on each of his mini-schedules.

  • For each task completed Jakob can earn one Krabby Patty on his mini schedule.

The Krabby Patty Connection and Jakob’s Mini-Schedule
  • Each Krabby Patty on his mini-schedule earns him a “piece” of the giant Krabby Patty at the end of each activity.

  • Once a giant Krabby Patty is made, Jakob earns an edible Krabby Patty.

The Krabby Patty Connection and Learning Centers…
  • Meltdowns. Particular tables in the room translated to “work time”
  • Connection:

-Created a Spongebob visual

  • Place larger corresponding Spongebob visuals around room.
  • Jakob chooses order in which to find the matching pictures.
  • Built our plan from what we knew about Jakob in the Problem Specification part of the process: need for movement and having choices.
  • Utilized same visual board as in first plan but replaced computer with Spongebob choices instead.
  • As a result, discovered his love for novelty items which increased the number of tools in our toolbox as far as items he wanted to work for.

The Spongebob Squarepants Sensory Connection…
  • Our data also told us that:

-likes to be under, behind, inside, on top of objects/furniture/clothing

  • Plan includes an underwater Spongebob haven
  • Rules:

-utilize break card anytime

-timer is set

-only earns krabby patties when he uses break card

  • Team is currently developing numerous sensory choices
ongoing data collection
Ongoing Data Collection
  • Data was collected by various team members over the course of a day but on different days.
  • Prior to implementation of plan: Data showed that Jakob was “running away” on average of 4x during structured activities/work times.
  • Since implementation of plan: Data shows that Jakob is “running away” on average of 1x during structured activities/work times.

“The energy I was putting into the daily power struggles was overwhelming. I’ve put a lot of energy into this plan, but in the end it has been so worth it to know that I am doing something productive for Jakob.”

-Steffany McConn

Jakob’s Teacher
