Assessing Behavior

In order to change inappropriate behavior and to increase appropriate responses, it is important for educators and parents to understand what is influencing or maintaining the inappropriate behavior.   In other words, educators and parents should understand the function of the behavior.   It is necessary to identify both the antecedents (events and contexts that precede the behavior), as well as the consequences (events and responses that follow the behavior).   Without this information, it can be impossible to achieve the behavior change that you want to see.
