    6. 6. Big IdeaWe must first understand why a behavior occurs before we are able to change it.
    7. 7. Steps to Understanding Reasons for Behavior
    8. 8. Step One: Describe What WasHappening Before the Behavior Started Who, What, When, Where, and then Why?  Where does the behavior happen?  When does the behavior happen?  Who is there when the behavior occurs?  What was happening right before the behavior started?
    9. 9. Step Two: Describe the Behavior Describe the behavior exactly. What did it look like (as if you had a video camera)? Who was involved? How long did it last? What was being said?
    10. 10. Step Three: What Happened Immediately Following the Behavior? What happened to end the behavior? What did the student do? Was someone else involved in ending the behavior? Did the student get what he wanted? What was it?
    11. 11. Big IdeaAll behavior happens for a reason and it ismotivated by something.
    12. 12. Some Reasons Behind Behavior Behaviors are a way of coping with what is happening around us. Behaviors are learned through trial and error. Behaviors that are reinforced are likely to continue. If a behavior continues to occur or it is increasing, it is being reinforced in some way. To change the student’s behavior, we must change what we are doing.
    13. 13. ReinforcementReinforcement is something that follows a behaviorthat either makes it occur more often or less often.Examples: - a baby says “mama” for the first time and mommy smiles, claps, and yells her excitement. (Positive) - loud buzz in some cars when ignition is turned on in order for driver to put on seat belt to eliminate irritating buzz. (Negative) - I receive a paycheck every 2 weeks. (Positive)
    14. 14. Reinforcement is Important  We all reinforce ourselves throughout the day. (i.e. an ice cream cone, a break, a favorite television show, praise)  Students with ASD tend to need a lot of reinforcement throughout their day. - It increases motivation to participate. - Participation can help in learning new things. - Once the behavior is learned, the reinforcement can usually be lessened.
    15. 15. Big IdeaEveryone’s reinforcers aredifferent. We have to find out what works for each student.
