Have you tried Boom Cards yet?
Boom Cards are self-correcting, digital task cards. Each deck is designed to provide immediate feedback and it even collects DATA FOR YOU!

This week over on my Instagram page I posted a 6-part series all about the ABCs of Behavior. It is important to not only observe the behaviors that a person demonstrates, but also the factors that trigger and maintain those behaviors.
Another important aspect of this three-term contingency is data collection. Without objective and measurable data, it is difficult to hypothesize the reasons why certain behaviors are occurring.
I compiled all the information from the ABCs of Behavior series and posted it on my blog. I even included a pretty cool tip for digital ABC data collection!

This is inevitably going to be one of the most challenging years of your career. Whether you have been in education for 20 years or are fresh out of college, all of us feel like first-year teachers. For some, that means integrating technology in ways we never thought possible, and for others, it means finding ways to engage students from behind a mask and 6+ feet away. As a BCBA in a public school system, I not only hear those same challenges but am living them myself. I see the hard work and dedication, know the feelings of confusion, chaos, and am working alongside you to try to make each day a little bit easier.
Last week I decided I wanted to create a few different posters, cue cards, and visuals for some of my students. I tried to think of things that could be used among many different grade levels and student populations; sets that could be used as a stand-alone resource, or combined with others based on a student's needs. I ended up creating 7 different resources from seated movement break cards to distance greeting ideas and everything in between. (I'll post a link in the comments if you'd like to check them out.)
Don't get discouraged as you adapt to the seemingly endless phases and changes to your educational plan this year. Remember that we are all in this together and reach out if you need anything!

Have you tried Boom Cards™ yet? Boom Cards are digital, interactive task cards hosted on the Boom Learning website, and let me tell you, they are an absolute game-changer.
Boom Cards are changing the way I create therapy materials and programming for kids. As long as you have an internet-enabled device, students can access the Boom Learning platform.
The best part is, you can assign decks to students and monitor their progress while they work.
Plus, digital task cards eliminate the need to share (or prep individual) materials for each student. Less prep, and more individualization, how can you go wrong?
Check out the graphic below to learn more and visit the link in the comments to check out the decks that I've made so far! ... See MoreSee Less

For all my Daniel Tiger 🐯 fans out there...
On August 17th, PBS will be featuring a music-filled episode that addresses some of the challenges children and their families are currently facing.
DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD: Won’t You Sing Along with Me? will focus on the feelings associated with missing family and friends, canceled events, and how to keep yourself and others healthy.
Check out the link to read more about this episode, in addition to links to resources specially designed for parents and educators regardless of your district's return to school plan for next year.
Fun Fact: Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood is an animated spin-off of the beloved show, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. Familiar characters and settings appear throughout the show, including his signature red cardigan. Each episode has a social-emotional theme, teaches associated feelings, and includes a "strategy song."
If you have a preschooler at home, don't miss this season premier.
