- Redirect the child: Guide the child to a different activity or group.
- Separation within the classroom: The child will go and take a break in the break area...the child will be given appropriate materials to take a break. Materials may include, comforting materials, sensory, book, puzzle, etc.
- Get help from the other staff member in the classroom: The other staff member in the classroom will repeat the above steps 1-3.
- Notify a supervisor:The supervisor will evaluate the situation to determine if the child needs to be removed from the classroom or have an extra staff member brought into the classroom.
