Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn about the CICUCO intervention rationale and procedures for students with intellectual disability.
  2. analyze the effectiveness of CICUCO according to current literature.
  3. identify the usefulness of CICUCO for their own practice, whether they deliver behavioral interventions directly (NASP Domain 4) or provide consultation to other staff responsible for providing behavior interventions (NASP Domain 2).


Check-In/Check-Out (CICO) is a common Tier 2 intervention which has demonstrated mixed results and has been understudied in special education populations. Researchers have hypothesized that an additional "check-up" (i.e., CICUCO intervention) may increase intervention effectiveness for certain demographics of students. Students with ID often experience challenges that may affect their social and behavioral functioning (i.e., poor peer relationships and social skills, difficulty controlling anger, and inappropriate behaviors) that may be improved using CICUCO.
