Catch those kids! They did something GREAT! Whether one or several are racing towards the finish line, this easy to use page keeps track of good behavior.
The printable, paper gameboard is... More > behaviorally designed to encourage repeat behaviors, by intermittently rewarding the child. As the game is played, the frequency of the rewards decrease and the value of the rewards increase.

The Catch Me Behavior Game is very effective with all children, regardless of age, including those with developmental disabilities such as Autism, HFA, PDD and Aspergers.
