The Self & Match System: Systematic Use of Self-Monitoring as a Behavior Intervention is a self-monitoring and motivational system firmly grounded in principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
This behavioral intervention encourages a collaborative approach to promoting systematic behavioral success for children and young adults using self-monitoring with a match component. Self & Match has been implemented internationally across a variety of settings such as: special and general education; home; camp; clinic; public, private, and parochial schools; post-secondary education; and sports programs. Self & Match can be incorporated into individualized behavior systems, class-wide, and school-wide management procedures as a part of SWPBIS. Systematic planning before beginning an intervention makes a world of difference and is a fundamental element of the Self & Match system. Each system is individually developed using a comprehensive considerations guide that is included in this manual.
Self & Match is an inexpensive, data-based, and interactive intervention. The 6th edition of The Self & Match System, with a lay-flat spiral binding, comprises all the materials necessary to guide practitioners and/or parents in the development and implementation of creating individualized Self & Match systems. Included in this manual is an introduction that provides a review of the literature supporting self-monitoring, Considerations Prior to Implementation Guide, twenty sample Self & Match forms, 5 reproducible Self & Match forms, and an assortment of supplemental materials. We are hopeful that this manual will help you develop successful behavioral interventions that meet individual student needs. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with a tool to help students monitor and reflect on their own behavior so that they can become more independent and self-determined, resulting in an improved quality of life.
