Beyond Behavior, v26 n3 p113-123 Dec 2017
Students with persistent challenging behavior are present in nearly every classroom. Teachers need the knowledge and skills to understand student behavior and intervene effectively. This article presents a framework to guide teachers in understanding student behavior and feasible tools for collecting data about the function of student behavior. Practical schoolwide strategies are provided for collecting and utilizing information about function of behavior to inform function-based supports for students prior to formal "functional behavior assessment."
