EHO ESC Therapy Team Presentation
Erie-Huron-Ottawa County Educational Service Center
March 30, 2004
Green (2003) "Red and Green Choices"  www.redandgreenchoices.com
Since the handout packet, video and discussion panel answered most questions, there seemed to be no pinpointed discussion topic. As a follow-up to the presentation, I decided to add a few photos and notes to expand on general topics. (click the photos)
Thank you to the volunteer panel:
Monica K., OTR/L Annie G., SLP Lisa G., Pre-K/KNG Teacher & SLP
Jennifer P., SLP Becky M., PTA and Kathy B. for organizing it.

Lisa G. made this for a preschool student. It has positive opposites and desired (unconditioned) reinforcers.

This was concerning general classroom expectations during circle time. It is specific to one individual.

A preschool student had filled the bathroom sink with water and bubbles so Lisa G. made these expectation cards.

I choose to use a straight line for my red faces, but some people choose the sad face.

Specific situations should be explained as they occur.

Becky M.'s famous necklace she wears to different schools to assist with therapy sessions. She put it on the back of her identification card.

Great idea.

I made this for a third grade student that kept lying his head down on a table, along with putting his pencil down on the table during his math assignment. Instead of giving repetitive verbal directions which were being ignored, I drew a picture and taped it on the table. The student did not ignore the picture.

I wrote on the back of the card what happened and my exact expectations during tasks. He did not want the picture, but accepted the consequences (a picture) to ignoring my directions. He had to learn to "accept and forget" instead of exploding or complaining when red is received.

I made this small card for a second grade student (non-reader) because he was making noises and being disruptively silly during his large group social studies class. I taped it inside his home/school folder for mom and dad to review at home, too. Red is drawn first because he knows this expectation. He was 'drifting' from green, and needed a reminder.

This was made for a third grade student explaining the importance of reading and following ALL written directions. He would often only do one part of a direction on a worksheet, therefore having incomplete work. 

I made this at the beginning of this 03-04 school year (K, 1, 2, 3 students) because I purchased a fish and three dwarf frogs as our new classroom friends. I was hoping this would help to be a relaxing alternative for students. The tank was new to the classroom and children needed to learn how to watch the tank without touching it.

They needed to learn it, before they did it.
