“Check” Data

Self Check: What next?

Assuming you chose to focus on Sophia’s attendance, what would you do next in your work with her?


Sophia likely knows that daily attendance is expected at school. Simply reiterating this expectation is not likely to create change in her behavior.


Though it may be tempting to implement what seems like an easy solution, by solving the problem in this way you deprive Sophia of a chance to practice problem solving skills, and you may not be addressing the cause of the behavior.


You will use your analysis of Sophia’s “Check” data to work together to plan an intensive intervention at your next Connect meeting.
