Reinforce the Message
Following the 6-week program, obtain feedback from the recess supervisors, students and principal about what went well and any lingering needs.
- Provide follow up OT coaching on an ongoing basis as needed. Visit recess sessions routinely (e.g. every other week) to touch based with the recess supervisors and find out how things are going. Observe interactions and solicit student input. Pay particular attention to students who appear to be 'loners' and struggle to participate. Provide activity suggestions and support as needed. Maintain relationships.
- Be creative! Collaborate with recess supervisors, teachers and students to do fun activities to sustain a positive recess experience for all students!
