This poster will present an intervention designed to reduce off-task behaviors and increase academic productivity for a sixth-grade boy. The intervention was designed using a collaborative consultee-centered approach. Results indicated that self-monitoring of performance plus positive reinforcement was associated with a decrease in off-task behaviors and an increase in math classwork completion. The intervention increased the student’s self-awareness and self-regulation regarding work completion and focus. Additionally, parent and teacher reported improved home-school collaboration. Attendees will learn how self-monitoring of performance plus positive reinforcement can be used to reduce off-task behavior and increase academic productivity.
