Student Case Study: Antonio
blurts out enthusiastically, disrupting instruction and other students' thinking process. Has big, emotional reaction to small problems and own mistakes. Too hard on himself.
Tier One Strategies
Use the calm corner when upset
Tier Two Strategies
Check In Check Out (CICO) to set goals for behavior, help the student track their progress, and earn rewards. Could be especially effective for a highly motivated student.
Establish Non-Verbal Signals: allows student to request a break in calm spot even when struggling with verbal communication.
ABC Chart: For tracking behavior and judging effectiveness of consequences.
Blurt Cubes: during discussion, student gets 3 "blurt cubes." Every time he blurts out, he gives up a cube. Getting through instruction or discussion without giving up all cubes earns an incentive. Number of cubes can be trimmed as student progresses toward goals.
Create special role as guest facilitator: ask student to watch for others raising hand and have him call on participants.
Tier 3 Strategies
Refer family to counseling services
Talk with family about testing for special services (IEP, 504)

Small group instruction by school counselor on size of problems and appropriate reactions.
Review expectations in community circle about how to participate in class discussions and the importance of allowing think time for everyone
Vary strategies for how students respond: random selection, share with a neighbor, small group discussions
Offer behavior-specific praise and frame mistakes positively in feedback
1:1 conversation and reminder of expectations
