Based upon literature review and successful practice in the real world we will look at the possible functions behind common problem behaviors such as off-task, out of the seat, interrupting, and difficult transitions as well as quick and easy strategies one can implement to change behavior. Incorporating basic ABA procedures, analyzing the environment for possible modifications, teaching replacement behaviors, and incorporating visual strategies are just some of the options we will consider.
