· Supports for the success of ALL students.
1) Behaviors are prerequisites for academics
2) Procedures and routines create structure
3) Repetition is key to learning new skills:
o For a child to learn something new, it needs to be repeated on average of 8 times
o For a child to unlearn an old behavior and replace with a new behavior, the new behavior must be repeated on average 28 times (Harry Wong).
4) For every year that a behavior has been in place, you should plan to spend at least one month of consistent, and appropriate intervention for you to see a change in the behavior. This is a rule of thumb.
