This new edition is even more flexible, providing students reminders of strategies printed on standard labels and carried with them in a small booklet.
The idea behind this CD/workbook package is that once a student has learned a strategy for overcoming behaviors that may be causing them problems, the instructor sticks the strategy sticker in a flip notebook. The student carries the flip-book with them throughout the day. With the flip-book, the student can easily and discretely refer to the strategies they have already learned to solve problems with independence. The result is fewer behavioral breakdowns and classroom disruptions. Sticker Strategies teaches self-reliance and problem-solving anytime, anywhere.
This is a great tool for a student that recognises their weaknesses and is motivated to improve. This tool is not effective for students that either don’t realise that they need improvement or who aren’t motivated to help themselves.
While originally developed for use with students with social cognitive learning challenges (the higher end of the autism spectrum, ADHD, etc.), these strategies can easily be applied to any child who needs that strong visual reminder which is a much more powerful teacher than an adult’s “nag.”
2nd Edition – more flexible, much more cost effective!
Now, not only can you print however many strategies you want onto a variety of flip books, but you can customize and save the formatted stickers in Word for individual students or behaviors and add your own notes in the Word document. The previous book included actual stickers, making the book expensive to print. This CD/book package is half the earlier version’s price and even more versatile!
The strategies span over 6 topics:
- Asking for Help
- Emotions and Problem Solving
- Organisation, Writing, and Homework
- Group Work
- Social Thinking
- Family Time- Home Strategies
Sticker Strategies on the CD and in the book enhance the lessons of the previous book, including learning how to respond appropriately to the size of problems, understanding the Spirals of Social Success and Social Failure and strategies related to the Levels of Friendships – how to keep friends and be friendly as appropriate to these levels.

CD (Mac and PC compatible) accompanies a 59 page paperback book – stickers can also be copied from book.
