When I wrote a behavior plan for my son, he was in the fourth grade and having significant behavior struggles. The school called in a behaviorist ... but her schedule was so packed she wouldn't be able to come for months. Frustrated, I typed up an overview of the behavioral issues associated with his disability, the things I knew worked for my guy, and links to websites with tips from other school districts as to how to handle kids like him. I presented the document to the teacher and child study team, and not only did it guide them through the rest of that school year, but it rode along with his IEP for years after. When the behaviorist finally did show up, she didn't see a need to do anything different.
