Written as a sample behavior strategy, this resource provides a case-study-style context to assist an Autistic child with transition issues. The primary behavior is laying in the hallway during transitions. The behavior strategy is positive reinforcement through a token economy system. Practical and well supported, this support plan could be a life saver.
Here are three assignments relating to decision-making and impulse control. Children with ADHD or behavioral issues discuss the need for making good decisions and for controlling their impulses. They make a timeline of ten decisions and their consequences from their own lives. Then complete a Personal Impulse Control Plan, and write a reflection piece that describes and explains the three things that they feel are the most important to self-control.

The concept of token economy isn't new. Here is one of the oldest behavior management tools in the teacher box, and its all ready to go!

I have filled out quite a few of these in my day! This ABC (antecedent, behavior, consequence) sheet is intended to collect comprehensible data to help determine the function of a particular behavior.

Explore human behavior by completing class activities. The class reads and defines comprehensive terms such as "delayed gratification" and "impulse control." They participate in a candy experiment in which students who wait to eat a piece of candy receive more at the end of the lesson. This would be a perfect lesson for students with self-control issues.
While this instructional activity focuses on appropriate behavior management techniques used in the home, it could apply to the classroom as well. Included are several PowerPoint presentations, Notes, and Stories, on positive behavior management techniques and discipline.
