Behaviour scales can be used to visually display an individual’s emotions or level of stress. When creating a scale, use clearly defined and observable behaviours (e.g. throwing items, yelling) to ensure consistency. 

Being able to identify each stage of stress would allow us to:

  • identify the earliest behavioural signs of stress
  • use behviour strategies to provide support before the individual escalates to a crisis point
  • help the individual return to a calm state faster
