WELCOME TO THE HET BEHAVIOUR SUPPORT PROGRAMME

 

 

 

     "Until we understand the behaviour and manage it in a positive way with appropriate interventions and strategies – it will not get better" :

 

 

HERE IS THE HET BEHAVIOURAL SUPPORT PROGRAMME 

 

 

*Please note that this part of the programme is an intregal  part of HET stepping Stone 2 and to be most effective, it is designed to run alongside both the therapeutic and educational programmes. 

 

 

Here is a very short film based on the famous poem by Dorothy Law  Nolte, 'Children live what they learn'. It is excellent at showing how the simplest and most basic approaches have the most positive and effective results in managing behaviour:

 

 

 

 

 


 

Part of the unique and copyrighted HET diagnostic tool, involves putting together a behavioural approach that bests suit the individual concerned. This approach is then agreed between home and school. Here is the background to what we are trying to do with this. You might need to go and make a cup of tea before watching this webinar production. It takes 40 minutes!

 

 

 

 

 


 

This is how we do the HET behavioural management approach and prove how well it works:

 

Consultations are carried out at home and at school to profile the issues around a child's behaviour. This includes observing those behaviours in different situations for a while and then looking for patterns in those behaviours.

 

Here is a simple diary form that we would ask parents / carers to complete:

Then we look at what triggers the behaviours at home and school and what those behaviours actually are.

 

When this has been done in different contexts, then we can start to put a  behavioural profile in place. This contains our observations; some suggested ways to deal with them, ( there is a checklist of suggestions we can try and evaluate how different ones work best). Then we take the ones that work the best and agree a behavioural strategy together. In otherwords, when this young person behaves in this particular way, we all agree that this is the best way to handle it. This will be different for every child!

 

So.....

 

We audit the behaviours

Checklist which behaviours we want and don't want

Deal with  those behaviours in different ways to see what works best

Action plan the strategy in which we manage those behaviours

Evaluate progress in line with other aspects of the therapy and the educational programme.

 

 

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE FROM PART  OF A YOUNG PERSON'S PROFILE TO SHOW YOU HOW IT WORKS.

In this way it is easy to measure the improvements that are made!

 

Here is an example of how we can show prove the  improvements and show  how effective this approach is:

This graph shows the number of times that a young man at a Pupil Referral Unit got a consequence of a warning; or time out for 5, 10 or 15 minites, or was sent to the Headteacher's office or  a phone call was made home or he was excluded. From the graph we can also see a timeline of events that affected his life and that his consequences got less severe and less frequent throughout the HET programme.

Whilst this approach focused on the consequences of poor behaviour, this next approach focused on the rewards of good behaviour. This particular student only followed the HET programme intermittently. Some times he would take his therapeutic 'drops' and other times he wouldn't.  This particular school awarded points for good behaviour every lesson. At the end of the week these points were converted into pocket money. By comparing the blue bars in the graph, which represent the number of points he earned towards pocket money, with the dates he was actually following the programme ( red bars), we can see that his behaviour was much improved at the times he was following the HET programme.

This is just one of the ways we show we are not just doing it right - we are getting it right!!
