First we need to identify the ABC’s.
A: what happens before the behavior is occurring; environmental variables? interactions with adults or peers? hungry? tired? wanted an item that was denied or in possession of another?
B: what does the behavior look like? describe it so that all who observe ‘know’ that is the behavior you are targeting
C: what comes after the behavior; time out? extra homework? reprimand from adult? laughing from peers? What is the consequence that is maintaining this behavior?
A single student (or a few) are causing grand disruptions that can be very frustrating. Why are they doing it? We don’t want to assume that they want to escape the work or they are looking for attention, until we gather more data.
This is the excerpt for your very first post.
I am excited to share my wealth of teaching information in partnership with my behavioral training. Students need structure and expectations, reliable consequences, and explicit instruction to be successful! I am here for you.
