"How I Am Incredible!"
The “How I Am Incredible!” handout is used to help teachers participating in the Incredible Years TCM program to share information about their students’ developmental levels, including language, social, emotional, and play levels, academic skills, likes and dislikes. In addition, teachers share their target student’s family support and specific goals for them. This form is completed in the first Incredible Years TCM workshop and helps the group leader and other teachers learn about others’ students in the group. During the first workshop, teachers share their goals for their students at that time. At subsequent workshops, teachers add details about the students’ specific developmental needs and make notes of any new discoveries they are making as they build relationships with their students, are engaged in child-directed social, emotional and academic coaching methods, and develop strategies that they find helpful in supporting their student’s goals. This form is also referred to by IY group leaders when tailoring role-play practices geared towards each student’s unique developmental, academic, and language level.
