Behavior Toolbox Benefits
Collating the statistics about the level, the frequency, the severity and the consequences of behavior is an important aspect of behavior management but providing the solutions to deal with the behavior is something else entirely.
The online Behavior Toolboxes provide those solutions in a positive and immediate way and are designed to enhance the knowledge and expertise of professionals in education and mental health environments.
Continual research ensures that all recognized and emerging topics are included and that the information and the strategies are the most current and most appropriate.
Some of the benefits are clear:
Assists the new teacher by providing a broad range of behavioral and learning classroom strategies, allowing them to spend more time teaching and less time focusing on problem behavior.
Assists the experienced teacher by reminding them of the wide range of strategies that are available for implementation in their particular situation.
Helps in the preparation of IEPs.
Assists in parent meetings by helping to prepare a comprehensive list of behavioral and learning strategies and suggested readings that parents can use in their home.
Teachers and parents can use the software together and decide which would likely be the most effective. This communicates the importance of the teacher-parent partnership in establishing successful programs for the individual child.
Used within a school, helps standardise the methods in which children’s behavior and learning difficulties are managed by all teachers. The emphasis in the software is the provision of positive strategies to deal with challenging behavior and learning difficulties.
Used by a number of local and regional schools it can have the effect of further standardising the manner in which behavior management is approached.
Teachers can become more comfortable dealing with the most common types of behavioral and learning difficulties and need only rely on additional help for the more difficult and complex situations.
For school psychologists, the software allows them to offer assistance in a timely and cost effective manner, particularly when they are responsible for a large number of schools.
The school psychologist will be able to improve their psychological reports with the inclusion of a broad range of the most current interventions in addition to using those strategies they have acquired from their own professional training and experience. They will be able to complete their reports in a more timely manner.
Assists all professionals in keeping current with the recent research and its application to the classroom.
