Assessing Individual Interventions for Fidelity
One way to keep track of how well the interventions are implemented is to make a list of all the steps that really need to be in place. This visual shows how Andy and his team did this by creating a simple fidelity of implementation checklist.
When Andy’s challenging behavior started to increase, the team used the tool on this page to check to see if any of the key elements of the plan were being left out of the intervention.
For instance, they may discover that Andy’s staff members have decreased the number of times they are prompting Andy to use the social invitation card when he comes home. Using this checklist can help figure out whether the intervention is being implemented in the way it was intended.
