Least Invasive Intervention

Non-Verbal Interventions

Help students get back on track by redirecting misbehaviors without using words

One of the most important goals for any teacher when managing behavior is to use the least invasive form of intervention possible to correct off-task behaviors. This in turn allows you to keep teaching, and that, of course, is the point of most redirections in the first place: To keep students engaged in the learning at hand. Non-verbal redirections – gestures, silently modeling a desired behavior, facial expressions, eye contact, etc. – are about as non-invasive a redirection as you can deliver. Learn how to use them effectively in this training.
