The chill passes are tools to help the student make a request for a break when becoming frustrated with current expectations or situation. The chill passes provide an alternative, more acceptable option to elopement or other disruptive behavior.
The chill passes can either be cut up and placed in a designated location for the student to manage, or kept as a full page. If kept together as a full page, then laminate so that the student can mark off when they request and take a break.
Although it might feel like giving in to the student, this strategy actually teaches the student how to develop self-regulation and express his/her emotions with a more appropriate and safe response.
