You are a supervisor in one of the following settings:
Vocational training program for young adults with developmental disabilities
Private preschool program for children with severe developmental and cognitive delays
ABA agency that provides in-home/in-school services to clients
Within your chosen setting, the following problems are evident and require remediation:
Some staff are not motivated; they often call out of work or do not complete all required duties within a shift.
Clients are not meeting behavioral or skill-based objectives in a timely manner.
Staff are not consistently conducting skill-based teaching protocols to clients.
Staff are not accurately completing data sheets and session notes as required.
Staff are frequently on their cell phones rather than attending to client needs.
Discuss your chosen setting and choose two problems to address. Provide a brief hypothetical scenario to introduce the class to your place of work and your staff. Then, discuss your supervisory approach to resolving each of these problems, making sure to follow an evidence-based functional approach. Finally, explain a way to implement self-monitoring for staff that will encourage and maintain desired staff behaviors.
The students in my classroom demonstrated proficiency when retelling the events of a story or book. Most students could complete a verbal retell of the events at an independent level, but some students struggled when trying to differentiate the events in the middle of the book (next and then) and needed some prompting from the teacher. When asked to retell the events of a story, students were asked to relay key details such as who, what, when and where. Students were able to retell the story with most of the details required, but it seemed that many students struggled to relay “when” an event occurred. When asked to retell the story presented in the learning segment, students were required to use sequencing terms, vocabulary presented, and key details from the text. When students became stumped or needed help, they received one-on-one support from the teacher during small-group work. In this learning segment, please note that Focus Student 1 falls below expectation (student with a 504 Plan), Focus Student 2 meets expectation, and Focus Student 3 exceeded expectation. When asked to retell the events of the story from beginning to end (sequencing), the majority (89%) of students were able to do so without prompting from the teacher. There were the fewest number of struggling students in completing this aspect of the task; I believe this is due to the fact that we discussed the terms “first, next, then and last” in great detail before Lesson 2. Only two students were unable to sequence events using the terms first, next, then and last correctly. The largest number of students mastered this aspect of retelling a story, which can arguably be one of the most important factors of a retell. All 3 of my focus students were able to use correct sequencing terms when discussing the text. When asked to use vocabulary from the text, most (79%) students were able to do so. Students exhibited basic understanding of vocabulary terms but struggled to explain how to apply their knowledge of sequencing to a new text. Students were generally able to define and explain how we find “who, whe>GET ANSWER
