This session will present an analysis of positive behavior support plans that includes the critical components to consider when writing the plan.  Behavior plans should consist of antecedent interventions to reduce motivation to engage in the problem behavior, a socially appropriate alternative behavior that will be taught to replace the problem behavior, and strategies for how staff will prevent the problem behavior from contacting reinforcement when it does occur.  Practical interventions for teaching appropriate communication and paring instruction with improving conditions will be discussed.  A focus on identifying the function, or functions, of problem behavior and then designing a plan that includes instructional goals to teach appropriate replacement behavior will be emphasized.
