Specific Situations
Red and Green Choices Strategies & Ideas
Green (2003) "Red and Green Choices"  www.redandgreenchoices.com

During presentations/in-services, and through E-Mails; teachers, therapists, parents, aides and those working with students on the autism spectrum or with behavioral concerns often ask about specific strategies to incorporate into specific situations. The links below provide possible ideas to situations.

"We always talk, write words, and draw possible acceptable and tolerable solutions to each and every situation as they occur, in green. We do the same for unacceptable and intolerable responses to stimuli, in red."

I often answer each question with the same response;
Begin small by breaking behaviors down to their simplest steps (shaping),
Reinforce the "green" (allow student success),
React immediately (feedback / predictability),
Allow students to have control over their environment (provide choices),
Use pairing to condition red and green meaning through your actions and reactions,
Draw or write out the exact expectations and consequences to behavioral choices (motivation),
Use the charts/lists instead of overloading language ("self-prompting"), and
Provide a "behaviorally trustworthy" relationship through focusing on the positive outcome.
