3 Term Contingency Model (ABC)
provides framework for all behavioral interventions
What does the ABC stand for?
B-behavior: the concerning behavior (the response)
C-consequence: event(s) following the behavior and determine if the behavior will continue (the reinforcement)
- EX: Antecedent---> Behavior <---Consequence
We must understand how the antecedent affects behavior and see how we can modify this to increase desired behavior. This might include changing classroom rules and procedures.
