In this lesson, you'll learn how to teach adaptive behaviors as alternatives to challenging ones. Children's challenging behaviors are a form of communication, and by understanding the ABCs of behavior (Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence), we can determine their purpose. Our goal is to introduce behaviors that fulfill the same need but are more appropriate. These new behaviors should be teachable when the child is calm, developmentally suitable, and require equal or less effort.
