No student is the same. Each person has different strengths and weaknesses. Individualized treatment plans include individualized measurements that are customized to their clinical needs. These include dichotomies, scaling, and counts.
Dichotomies: A measurement on a 1-5 Likert scale that allows staff to rate students on how much growth they have made on a given day. Examples of dichotomies include anxious vs. calm, engaged vs. disengaged, proactive vs reactive, resilient vs avoidant, etc.
Scaling: Students can often score themselves or seek feedback from others on a 1-10 scale on a particular measurement such as consideration of others, positive self talk, etc.
Counts: Staff count during a shift how many times a student uses a new skill or struggles with a
particular behavior that they are trying to improve.
