Behavior incentives

Hello! I'm new to Special Ed and am teaching Jr. High Content Mastery. I have a student that is supposed to recieve behavior incentives in content mastery. I'm needing tips and tricks as to how to set up a program with him. (I'm thinking about some sort of colored card system with prizes after he reaches certain goals??) I'm pretty clueless and on my own. Any ideas or experiences would be appreciated!
Thanks!!

What about a checklist?

I'm not sure how receptive a JR high kid would be with a colored card system, but I'm thinking about the elementary cards...perhaps yours is smaller and more discreet.

Have you tried giving him a certain number of minutes on the computer or Ipad? I've used this before and it's worked for me. Another thing I have tried with older students is using a behavior checklist with an extrinsic reward at the end of the week. My student loved anything that I baked. So we decided that if 80% of the time for the week he followed his behavior checklist, Thursday night he would give me a few idea of what treat he would like on Friday. If I saw him getting off task I would just tap him on his shoulder and remind him of his "treat".

I decided that the student really needed motivation to do his homework, so that was the behavior I decided to incintivize. He is really into angry birds, so I told him if he would do all of his homework for the week, he would be allowed to play angry birds on my ipad on fridays.

I spoke with our behavior specialist and she said that was absolutely appropriate. I was trying to make it way too hard.

Thanks for the advice!

Behavior contract

I have used a behavior contract with one of my students(7th grade). You can use it just in your class or in any/all reg. ed classes.

It basically was a check list with 4 goals (target behaviors), like: Talk to classmates at appropriate time and in an appropriate way , Stay focused on class assignment, or Keep hands to himself. Then he took the checklist to his teacher the end of every class and his teachers had to initial by each goal he made. He then got a point for every goal initialed. At the end of the week if he had a certain number of points he would get his "treat". The treats he got to pick from a list I gave him with inexpensive things I could provide like: candy or gum, extra time with the art teacher, getting to display his artwork in the hall ( he liked to draw), time on the computer, etc.

Hope this helps
