BIST: Behavior Intervention Support Tools
There are four steps in the BIST Model:
1.) Early Intervention
2.) Caring Confrontation
3.) Protective Planning
4.) Outlasting the Acting Out
This month, we will focus on Early Intervention. The key to early intervention is stopping the behavior when you see it; not waiting until you feel it.
There are four components to early intervention:
2.) Gateway Behaviors: Behaviors that can be deemed as insignificant by adults but lead to bigger issues. (Ex. eye rolling, mumbling under breath, avoiding eye contact)
3.) Redirection: Redirect the student only one time; addressing a behavior the first time we see it instead of waiting until we feel it.
4.) Triage: Systematic way to provide early intervention for students to prevent acting out.
