Understanding Behavior: ABC as easy as 123
The focus of this training is to guide teachers to better understand why behaviors happen in the classroom. It will examine the sequence of how behaviors occur, and then understand strategies to use within the classroom to shape behavior. Teachers will learn both antecedent and consequence strategies to take with them to use in their classroom to increase appropriate behavior and decrease challenging behaviors.
