pdf-icon Topic in Action

Pause & Reflect #1

Based on what you have learned about students most likely to benefit from CICO:

  • Consider several students who struggle with problem behavior – would they be good candidates for CICO? Why or why not?
  • How will the information gathered on the Adapted FACTS Part A be helpful in making decisions about students who are good candidates for Check-In, Check-Out?

Pause & Reflect #2

Based on what you know about the daily components, why is Check-In, Check-Out particularly effective for students who are seeking adult attention?

Pause & Reflect #3

If a colleague approaches you and asks why Check-In, Check-Out was selected as an intervention for your school, what information could you provide to support the implementation of CICO?
