To conclude
How to use this:
First, describe the behaviour you wish for them to demonstrate, either to redirect an unwanted behaviour or to establish limits.
Then, explain to the child or youth why the behaviour you asked them to demonstrate is safe, follows classroom rules, etc. It may be a good idea, depending on the child, to allow them to explain why they think the behaviour explained is preferable .
Remember: Be reasonable, be clear, and review.
Limits should be reasonable, revolving around safety, respect and cleanliness
Limits should be age specific
May make a child feel uncomfortable, isolated, or uneasy
Children who are developmentally delayed may not understand
Other children may feel left out
Difficult if it does not register with the child
An understanding of a preferable behaviour
An understanding of why their previous behaviour was unacceptable
A demonstration of what is acceptable
Clients will be able to have a greater understanding of what is appropriate within the community (Life, & Social Skills)
