Special Education Strategies to Build Confidence in School

Do you have a student who struggles with confidence in his/her ability to complete assignments in school?

In today’s Teacher Tips newsletter, Watson experts share how to use behavioral momentum to help build your student’s confidence to complete assignments that he/she may deem challenging.

Behavioral momentum is a strategy designed to build a student’s momentum for following directions. Start by asking a series of easier questions or problems to help your student feel comfortable. Then, lead up to more difficult questions. This builds confidence from the start and helps your student tackle those more challenging questions with more confidence and less trepidation.
