Improving Behavior one
H. U. G. at a time
Presenters:
Pam Hallvik, Administrator
Sally Helton, EBIS Coordinator
Nancy Brown, Counselor
I’ve come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive
element in the classroom. It’s my personal
approach that creates the climate. It’s my
daily mood that makes the weather.
As a teacher, I possess
tremendous power to make a child’s
life miserable or joyous. I can be a
tool of torture or an instrument of
inspiration. I can humiliate or humor,
hurt or heal.
In all situations it is my response
that decides whether a crisis will
be escalated or de-escalated and a child
humanized or dehumanized.
HaimGinott, Child Psychologist and Teacher, from Teacher and Child

 Define the logic and core features of Targeted
Interventions, and the specifics of the H.U.G.
Program.
 Provide empirical evidence supporting H.U.G.
and practical examples from elementary
schools.
 Self-assess if H.U.G. is appropriate for your
school.

Hello~Update ~Goodbye
… a targeted intervention
 A check in/check out system that supports
students experiencing challenging
behaviors

reinforcement and positive attention from
adults
 A team approach connecting school and
home
Foundations for H.U.G. Success
 Effective PBS/EBIS Team
 Strong PBIS school-wide systems
 Data based decision making in place
 Willingness to reward students for incremental
changes in behavior
 Follow through from adults
 Belief that adults can make a difference in a
student’s behavior

for behavior and academic concerns
“There is no significant
learning without
a significant relationship.”

How is it working?
 H.U.G. students’ rate of academic growth shows a
significant increase with this support. Example: oral
reading fluency of 2nd grade HUG students increased 50%
as compared to the 21.8% increase of the general
population.
 On average, 85% of students met their goal daily.
 Most H.U.G. students remain on the program for approx. 3
to 6 months and then graduate to the “Personal
Challenge” or “Self-Manager” level.
 Students participating in H.U.G generally experience a
reduction in office discipline referrals of at least 40%.
Why does H.U.G. work?
 Improved structure
 Prompts are provided throughout the day for correct behavior.
 Student meets daily with at least one positive adult.
 Student chooses to participate.
 Student is “set up for success”
 First contact each morning is positive.
 “Blow-out” days are pre-empted.
 First contact each class period (or activity period) is positive, and
sets up successful behavioral momentum.
 Increase in contingent feedback
 Feedback occurs more often.
 Feedback is tied to student behavior.
 Inappropriate behavior is less likely to be ignored or rewarded.
Adapted from: Horner, Sugai, Todd, Rossetto-Dickey, Anderson, Scott 2007
Why does the H.U.G Program
Work?
 Program can be applied in all school locations
 Classroom, playground, cafeteria (anywhere there is a supervisor)
 Elevated reward for appropriate behavior
 Adult and peer attention delivered each target period
 Adult attention (and/or tangible reward) delivered at end of day
 Links behavior support and academic support
 For academic-based, escape-maintained problem behavior incorporate
academic support
 Encourages and provides for more home and school communication
 Provide format for positive student/parent contact
 Program is organized to morph into a self-management system
 Increased options for making choices
 Increased ability to self-monitor performance/progress

What’s Happening Now. . .
 Creative ways to
 Sharing Goal Success
reward and motivate
kids
 Transition to
Challenge, SelfManagement and
H.U.G. Leader levels
immediately with
significant staff &
parents
 Ensuring that ALL
students at school
have a connection
with staff
. . . and what we’ve learned
 Data-based decision making does work
 The H.U.G. philosophy has become an
integral part of how all staff works with
every student
 With less or no dollars, it remains a
priority
 Students are finding success across all
boundaries in their lives
Plan for the future:
We want self-managers
 Embed self-management strategies as driven
by the data
 Use natural signals for monitoring as much as




possible
Teach students to Self-monitor
Self-record, check for accuracy by comparing with
teacher’s rating
Reduce check points during the day
Manage own H.U.G. account

gHUG
“Showin’ Up”
 Create point column for check-in and check-out –
get extra bonus pts. for showing up.
“Doublin’ Up”
 Award student double points during consistently
difficult times of day.
“Cashin’ In”
 Create a list of opportunities that can be earned
over time.
Critical Elements For Success
 Use data to look at the WHOLE child
 Find as many school staff as possible to
celebrate ANY goal successes
 The check-in person MUST be positive and
consistent
 Individualize plans and rewards with
creativity, flexibility and authenticity
Is the H.U.G. Program right for your
school?
 Faculty and staff commitment
 Are there students with multiple referrals?
 Are staff willing to commit 5 min per day per student?
 Is H.U.G. a reasonable option for you?
 H.U.G. is designed to work with “yellow zone” students.
 H.U.G. does NOT replace need for individualized supports within
and outside of the classroom.
 Team Available
 H.U.G. Coordinator (reviews data weekly)
 H.U.G. Check-in Person (mornings and afternoons)
 Intervention Team (meets at least monthly) to review
progress of the intervention

H.U.G. Implementation
 What are the starting roadblocks that may
surface for your school?
 Using the resources you have, how might
you overcome these challenges
 Group sharing of solutions.
Questions to take back
to your school
 Who could be our H.U.G coordinator?
 What resources does our school have to
support H.U.G.?
 What student data do we collect that can be
used in making decisions for H.U.G.?
 How will we get commitment or buy-in from
staff?
Never underestimate
the power of a
H.U.G. . . .
Any Questions?
