Helping a student manage his/her feelings and emotions takes a multi-faceted approach. No one tool will be the secret weapon. In creating this Communication Log, however, it is my desire that you can offer your student just one more tool in his/her repertoire of devices to help manage his/her behaviors.
This Communication Log is designed to be utilized with a child well before he/she has a meltdown (use as an instructional tool) or once a meltdown has subsided (when the child is calm). You may want to use it for both: instructionally and after the calm. Its purpose is to provide strategies that are healthy alternatives to disruptive, harmful ones.
12 feelings and emotions
10 disruptive strategies student engages in
11 replacement behaviors
Communication is the key. Communication between you and your student. Discuss the ‘whys’ behind their choices. That’s the beauty of this device. It can be a nonthreatening way to engage the student while providing instruction throughout.
**It will be important that these alternatives be made available to the student as soon as feasibly possible once their request is made. By doing that you are reinforcing their desire to make a positive choice.
