Follow all instructions
The next step is to analyze your collected data to plan an intervention. In the initial stages of planning a behavior intervention, the focus is on:
Attention to environmental context.
Emphasis on “purpose” or function of behavior.
Focus on teaching behaviors.
Below are some points to consider as you fill out each part of the form.
Problem Behavior:
· Must be an action
· Must be a problem behavior

Topographical definition
· Describes the form of the behavior.
· What specific actions are involved (e.g., crying, screaming, falling to floor)
· Specific to the individual that performs it.
· No unobservable terms
· Does not include antecedents
· Can include examples
· Can include non-examples
Precursor behaviors
· A precursor behavior is a behavior that the individual engages in just prior to the
· It is not the same as an antecedent to the behavior.
· For example: a dog that bites probably engages in precursor behaviors such as growling or putting their tail between their legs.
· A person who yells at others may engage in precursor behaviors such as folding their arms or frowning.
Setting events: What setting events did you notice that you believe impacted the problem behaviors.
Sets the stage for immediate antecedents to trigger the behavior
· Time of day
· Location
· Physical state (hungry, tired, sick)
· Other people around
· Past experience in similar situations
Sd for problem behavior (Pretreatment Antecedents): Describe some of the antecedents that are present when the behavior of concern occurs that may be a discriminative stimulus for the problem behavior.

Observable condition that happens just before the behavior. What sets off the behavior?
· Being asked to do something (demand)
· An item taken away
· Seeing a certain person/item
· Told “no” or “wait”

Pretreatment Reinforcers: Describe the consequences that appear to be maintaining the behavior of concern.
This is the maintaining consequence. After the behavior:
· Does someone speak to the person or interact with them in some way? (attention)
· Does it result in removal or postpone a demand or request? Stop talking, stop looking at the person or walk away from them? (escape)
· Give them a toy, food, or activity? (Access to tangible)
· Are sensations provided or removed? (sensory)

Hypothesis regarding function of behavior:
When: _____________________________
And-(antecedent to behavior) _______________________________
Behavior: _______________________________
In order to (function): _______________________________
· Attention
· Escape/avoidance (demands)
· Access to tangible items
· Sensory (obtain or escape)
Desired behavior
What do you want the person to do instead

Sd for the desired behavior
What should prompt the desired behavior?
Programed consequences to desired behavior
What will reinforce the desired behavior?

Functional replacement behavior
The replacement must match the function of the problem behavior. This means, it must result in the same category of reinforcement.
· More appropriate than the problem behavior, but not as appropriate as the desired behavior.
· A stepping stone toward the desired behavior.
Sd for the functional replacement behavior
What will prompt the replacement behavior.
Programmed consequences to the functional replacement behavior
What will reinforce the replacement behavior
· Must be the same category of reinforcer that follows the problem behavior.
Explain why the replacement behavior matches the function of the problem behavior.
Explain how the replacement behavior earns the same type of reinforcer
Baseline data
From your ABC sheet, describe one dimension of the behavior: Frequency, duration, intensity, topography
Write three stort term objectives and one long-term objectives for the problem behavior.
· The first sto should be closest to baseline.
· Each successive sto should require some improvement
· The LTO is where you expect the person to be at the end of your intervention prior to discharging the goal.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
