Safety Monitor: Suicide and Self Harm Prevention
Special Education: Autism, Aspergers
Use this Safety Monitor to explain the significance of a person’s words and actions. This monitor was created after I had a few students with autism who exhibited depression and threatened to kill themselves. I wanted a way to visually explain to them what this meant. Suicide and violence is a serious issue which is why I decided to put this on TeachersPayTeachers for free. The only payment I ask is that you share this with as many people who will benefit from it. If you find it helpful, I would love for you to follow me on TeachersPayTeachers and leave a positive feedback for this item.
I highly recommend that this tool be used in a discussion format with the teacher and student talking through the issues. Then after teaching moments, the tool can be used in real situations to help the student monitor his or her behavior.
Use this for all students including those with disabilities such autism, Asperger’s, emotional disability, attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Helpful for special education teachers, general classroom teachers, social workers, guidance counselors, therapists, and parents.
Directions: Print the desired chart to use depending on the student's ability level and need. Glue the printed chart on construction paper or cardstock. Laminate and cut out. Use the supplied arrow and tape it to a clothespin. This allows the teacher to move the arrow to the appropriate category. If a clothespin is too cumbersome, use a paperclip to easily move around.
