Turns out Emmett didn’t have such a good day at school

Turns out Emmett didn’t have such a good day at school

I don’t know why we didn’t notice this on Friday. Apparently, Emmett didn’t have a good day at school.  This is pretty much out of character for Emmett John. 
Not sure what was going on.  Perhaps he just had an off day. 


We all have bad days and kids with Autism are no matter exception.

Lost and Tired

This wasn’t a big deal. Just unusual for him because he’d been doing so well.

Hey, we all have our bad days!

Sounds like a normal day in our classroom. :-/)

There is no other way to determine triggers. If you don’t have those critical pieces of info (what happened directly before and what happened directly after each behavior) you cannot hope to change the behavior. The antecedent and consequent are extremely important. Unfortunately, many teachers have a difficult time determining these.

Lost and Tired

We only asked for them to share the behavior with us, not what they did to address it. Although, now that you mention it, that would be good information to have. 🙂

I am slowly learning. I notice that the note comments on your son’s actions, yet never mentions what steps were being done or said by the adult in charge to deescalate or redirect the child. Essentially, what could (adult in charge) have done at any given point in the chain of events to prevent or reduce the subsequent actions? Carrollynn, am I on the right track here?


AndyHolloman it seems my girl has been having rough days more than not. * sigh* Getting “Lost and tired” myself. 🙁

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
