Universal Strategies: Nonclassroom Settings
  • Identify Setting Specific Behaviors
  • Develop Teaching Strategies
  • Develop Practice Opportunities and Consequences
  • Assess the Physical Characteristics
  • Establish Setting Routines
  • Identify Needed Support Structures
  • Data collection strategies
identify setting specific behaviors
Identify Setting Specific Behaviors
  • Identify problems
    • Student to adult
    • Student to student
    • Student to system
  • Generate a list of replacement behaviors {What do you want students to do?}
  • Frame in positive observable terms
  • Use students’ input
develop teaching strategies
Develop Teaching Strategies
  • Develop social skill lessons
  • Provide multiple opportunities to practice
  • Develop pre-correction strategies
  • Involve ALL staff (and students) in instruction
develop practice opportunities consequences
Develop Practice Opportunities & Consequences
  • Specific verbal feedback using language of social skills
  • Reinforcers / Incentives
  • Teach in settings / Practice in settings
  • Error corrections
  • Uniform standards and outcomes for serious rule offenses
assess the physical characteristics
Assess the Physical Characteristics
  • Determine which environmental factors contribute to the problem
  • Determine which environmental factors can be modified
  • If factors cannot be modified, what supervision is required?
establish setting routines
Establish Setting Routines
  • Everyone knows, and follows, the rules
  • Routines established that allow students to demonstrate appropriate skills & minimize problem behavior
  • Adult monitoring
  • Feedback
identify needed support structures
Identify Needed Support Structures

Such as….

  • Reschedule transitions or activities to allow adequate adult supervision
  • Insure all supervisory staff are fluent with nonclassroom procedures
  • Insure all staff participating
  • Conduct social skill lessons
  • Provide pre-corrects / prompts
  • Implement support structures (e.g., supervision, altered schedules)
  • Provide feedback
monitor evaluate
Monitor / Evaluate
  • Anecdotal data
  • Behavior counts
  • Behavioral Infractions from targeted setting
bullying defined
Bullying Defined

“A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other students” (Elliott, 2002)

types of bullying
Types of Bullying

  • Emotional
  • Sexual
bullying and peers
Bullying and Peers
  • Perpetrator
  • Victim
  • Bystander - do not directly participate but reinforce the bully
  • Non-participant - do not participate, simply present, but take no action to prevent
  • Passive-submissive – anxious, fearful, withdrawn, bully reinforced by occasioning the behavior
  • Provocative – display annoying and aggressive responses & thereby inadvertently reinforce the “bully”
gender differences
Gender Differences
  • Boys = “direct” physical / verbal intimidation
  • Girls = “indirect” gossip and rumors
  • Males = larger numbers of both bullies and victims
outcomes of bullying
Outcomes of bullying
  • Short term
    • Bully - reinforced – increases future bullying
    • Victim - somatic symptoms, fearful, avoidance
  • Long term
    • Bully
      • 60% grades 6-9 had been convicted of an aggressive crime in adulthood
      • More likely to be violent(Nansel et al, 2004).
      • More likely to have children who bully
    • Victim
      • depression, poor self esteem, suicide, school drop out
      • Ostracized by peers
bully prevention keys
Bully Prevention Keys
  • School & home that is characterized as “warm” but sets firm limits for unacceptable behavior
  • When violations occur, non-hostile, nonphysical sanctions be consistently applied
  • Careful monitoring of student activities
  • Adults should act as responsible authorities during all adult-child interactions, especially when bullying occurs
bully intervention basics
Bully Intervention Basics
  • Perpetrator- discourage / appropriate sanctions
  • Victim – teach strategies to appropriately avoid/escape situations that involve bullying & place in activities in which they can succeed to boost confidence
  • By-standers – make them aware of their supporting role and discourage them
  • Non-participants – teach them to discourage bullying and to not show approval if observed
