This product is designed for students with autism, social skill deficits or other behavioral needs who need individualized support to help self regulate their emotions and improve their behavior throughout their school day.
This packet is broken down into 3 key sections that not only help students identify their emotions and how their actions may affect others, but that also provides students with a wide range of tools and strategies to help them gain emotional control. Additionally, supports are provided (for both the teacher and/or the student through self monitoring) to track and reinforce each time the correct strategy is utilized and the student demonstrates appropriate self calming techniques.
2 different clip art options are provided to help accommodate and support a wide range of students.
-Clip art option 1 contains clip art images from smarty symbols. These are appropriate for students who struggle with discrimination between and need a ‘less busy’ graphic.
-Clip art option 2 contains more traditional clip art images (students with different hair styles/clothing) which may be more appropriate for more advanced learners.
(Each support listed below is created in BOTH of the 2 clip art options)
