Target Behaviors
• Observable
• Measureable
Examples…
Which is best?
1. Ally is defiant.
2. Ally stays at the computer to continue
playing after her time is up and requires
prompting to end and move to the next
activity.

What’s the Function?
Ally stays at the computer to continue playing
after her time is up and requires prompting to
end and move to the next activity.
Ally wants to continue engaging in a preferred
activity.
Escape/Avoid non-preferred activity
TOOL
Replacement Behaviors
• Must serve the same function as the problem
behavior
• Be proactive, not reactive
• Be efficient and effective
• If we do not teach a new behavior, the
student will come up with a new way to get
what he/she wants.
Examples of Replacement
Behaviors
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use a schedule
Say “all done”
Ask for a break, help, a turn, a hug
Identify feelings
Say “no”
Take turn
Express feelings using words
Strategies/Interventions
3 Common Research-Based Strategies
- Check-in and Check-out
- Token Economy
- Scheduled Breaks
Check-in and Check-out
• Why
• When
• How
Token Economy
• What is it?
• What are the benefits
Scheduled Breaks
 Why
 What does it look like?
Positive Reinforcement/
Natural Consequences
• Occurs when a reward, sometimes called a
reinforcer, is given for a specific desired
behavior.
• Over time, this will lead to an increase in the
desired behavior.
• Many experts believe that reinforcement is
more effective than punishment in shaping
long term behavior.
• Should be age appropriate and
something valued by the student,
Tool
• Forced –Choice Menu
• Picture Menu
Progress Monitoring
• How
• How often
• By whom
- Is the replacement behavior increasing?
- Is the target behavior decreasing?
- Is the reinforcement decreasing?
Plans should be reviewed two to three weeks
after implementation and monthly following.
FBA
Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA) identify the
function(s) of an individual student’s behaviors and provide
information leading to effective interventions and needed
supports.
Purpose of FBA:
An FBA allows educators to better understand the following
areas of concern:
• Skill deficits (academic and behavioral)
• Performance deficits (academic and behavioral)
• Student preferences
• Reinforcement that is maintaining appropriate and/or
challenging behavior.
• For a student who becomes subject to disciplinary action a
functional behavioral assessment is used to develop a
behavior intervention plan within the context of the IEP
process.
BIP
• Same components as a BMP but driven by
the FBA
• Must be progress monitored
• Must be reviewed three weeks after
implementation
• Must be revised if progress is not being made
by the student
