Step 1: Set Goals
A DRC should contain three to eight clearly defined behavioral goals, chosen in collaboration with your child's teachers. These goals may pertain to academic work (completes and returns homework), conduct (follows classroom rules), peer relationships (doesn't boss other children), or other areas in need of improvement.
To ensure that each goal is attainable, make it possible for your child to make a few slips and still receive credit, such as: "Follows directions with three or fewer repetitions." A good criterion is one that your child can meet at least 75 percent of the time.
