Don’t Miss the Bus! Strategy Intervention Form

Take a minute to reflect on your observations of a positive strategy that you put into action. What worked? What didn’t work? Mark the areas that apply with a + for a positive experience and a -- for ones that you need to work on another time. Reflecting on a situation after using a positive strategy intervention is helpful in helping to focus on the things that will work with your particular child. Remember these skill building strategies do not uniformly fit every child in every situation. My best advice to you is to 1. reflect 2. monitor 3. adjust!
