Once you understand what is maintaining the inappropriate behavior, you are ready to develop a plan to address this behavior. This plan should be carefully arranged and it should include the input from all important stakeholders (parents, teachers, and sometimes the student). If you don’t have “buy-in” from all parties involved, then your plan will not be implemented with consistency and accuracy. As you implement this plan, it is important to carefully monitor the situation and collect data on the behavior, so you can objectively determine whether the plan is having its intended effect. Keep in mind that behavior management plans often undergo minor (and sometimes major) adjustments along the way.
