This visual is designed as a support to address attention-seeking behaviors. Time out's can be a meaningful intervention to reduce attention-seeking behaviors. To assemble, print and laminate both pages. Cut out the "time out" strips into three. Back with hard velcro and place three pieces of soft velcro on the green template. Each time a student engages in an unexpected behavior, reference the visual and place a strip on. Be sure to provide language for the EXPECTED choice as a proactive strategy. If three strips are earned, place a student in a time out. It may additionally be helpful to use a timer as a sound cue to support the transition back to the activity.
