Behavior can be approached in a similar fashion to academic skills. While some kids come to us with deficits in reading or math, others have deficits with regard to social skills or emotional regulation. Just as we would help students with reading deficits set goals and chart improvement, we want to do the same with students with behavioral deficits. Having a student set an individual daily behavioral goal can prove beneficial for many students and their teachers. Not only does it allow for the teacher to build a stronger connection with the student by offering them help, rather than punishment, but it also reminds the student that they are in control and they can grow!
