Behavior Management Strategies

Target Behavior The behavior selected for intervention, most often to be extinguished or changed, although it may be a positive behavior that should be used in other school situations.
Response Generalization Application of a learned behavior or skill to another setting.
Positive Reinforcement Student is motivated to use a desired behavior because of the reward to be obtained.
Perseveration When a behavior continues repeatedly beyond the typical endpoint and the student demonstrates difficulty switching tasks.
Negative Reinforcement Student is motivated to use a desired behavior in order to avoid a negative consequence.
Modeling Use of imitation to set in place the desired behaviors.
Manifestation Determination Team review of the relationship between a student's inappropriate behavior and the disability.
Discrete Trial Training Strategy in which the function or task is broken down into steps that are rewarded immediately on a trial by trial basis.
Contingency Contract Written agreement between a student and teacher that outlines the expected performance and the consequences or reinforcers used.
Consequences Stimulus that follows a behavior action used in behavior management/modification to increase or decrease the behavior.
Behavior Rating Scale An evaluation tool that lists specific observable behaviors to assess the severity, frequency, and type of exhibited behaviors.
Behavior Intervention Strategies or actions used to extinguish, change, or redirect an inappropriate behavior.
Antecedent Stimulus used in behavior management and modification that occurs prior to the behavior and establishes the reason for the behavior.
Alternative School Placement Public school option that may be utilized when a student can't function in traditional school due to uncontrolled behaviors or a disruption resulting in suspension or expulsion.
