Teaching our students how to identify and regulate their behaviors will help them to be successful in the community. One effective way that I have found for students with ASD, ED, and other emotional or social difficulties is by using a 5 point incredible scale.
I have had a lot of success with students learning how to first identify how they are feeling. And then from identification of feelings, behaviors, or emotions be able to identify how to regulate their behavior and replacing interfering behaviors.
The TMNT behavior scale shows their behavior or emotion level, their behavior, and the consequences to their behavior.
