Item # Product Description Photo Price



Developed by Janie Haugen-McLane, It's Up to Me is a self-monitoring system that encourages individuals to closely examine their own behavior and change negative behaviors to positive behaviors. The complete system includes a Teacher's Binder with reproducible forms and activity sheets and 6 3-ring Participant Binders.

This unique program challenges individuals to improve their behavior at home, work, school, in the community, and at mealtime. Individuals take responsibility for charting their own behavior on a daily basis in their own motivational behavior notebooks. 6 different motivational notebook covers are included in this program. Instructors can also monitor individual progress to ensure accuracy.

Charting is made easy with visual cues. Individuals with little or no reading skills can easily monitor their own behavior with this easy-to-use, self-monitoring system. The Teacher's Binder includes 150 objectives that cover a person's entire day from getting out of bed in the morning and preparing for school or work to dinner and bedtime.
