Child in Your life:
B. Child in Your life:
If you have regular access to the child look for moments when the child engages in challenging behavior. If other adults spend time with this child ask for support. This will allow you to collect moments when you’re not present.
If you do not have regular access to the child you will need to rely on the family member to provide information. This would be a good time, if it is possible, to spend some time with the child and their family.
You will collect a minimum of 3 challenging behavior observations. Use them to fill out the: Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence, and Possible Function. Do your best to fill out the chart and address the questions. Look at the Adara’s Example
Note: The Consequence is the impact the behavior had on supporting or eliminating the behaviors and is not linked to punishment.
ABC Chart for Child in Your life
II Complete a Behavioral Hypothesis
Write a Behavioral Hypothesis (1 page minimun, 2 page maximum: You will use the data from the ABC chart to create a Behavioral Hypothesis. This is a summary of triggers, behaviors and maintaining consequences (outcomes of behaviors) and possible functions. Cite sources
Brief example: In group play situations (outside play/centers), Tim uses verbal aggression (threats), physical aggression (hit, push, kick, punch), and property destruction (throwing or banging toys) to obtain toys and/or join play. When this occurs, the peer relinquishes the desired toy and leaves the play area and/or an adult intervenes and provides Tim with excessive negative attention possibly meeting his needs and strengthening future responses. Based on these interactions it is likely that Tim is seeking friendships and attention and does not have the skills. This is one example, you will write a statement that provides several examples from your ABC analysis. When working with a real child, the hypothesis statement would include feedback from other adults in the child’s life.

What is your new response to the behavior? Now that you have identified what is maintaining the challenging behavior.
What prevention skills will you put in place and what skills will be taught and encouraged. Explain how this will be accomplished. For example, you might create (visual schedule), make additional environmental changes, role playing, related activities, group discussions, visual aids etc.
