Behavioral Support Plans

[WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review section 10.1 in your textbook and read Behavioral Support Plan Tools & Tips (Links to an external site.).

Behavioral support plans are a great way to build a plan that helps shape, replace, or reduce challenging behavior. These plans often rely on use of behavioral data to identify key trigger behavior information. Additionally, these plans may include things such as ways to deepen relationships, ways to improve parent communication, ideas to impact environmental changes, and strategies to improving the behavior. These plans also identify goals and members of the behavioral support team.

For your Final Paper, you will create a behavioral support plan utilizing behaviors found in Jose and Olivia. Pick either Jose or Olivia and review their behaviors. Select three challenging behaviors from your chosen student to complete the behavioral support plan. Your behavioral support plan will include things such as trigger, problem behavior, consequence, function, desired behavior, maintaining consequences, preventions, teaching, goals, data collection, and parent involvement.

Utilize the ECE 201 Week 5 Final Project template to complete the behavioral support plan. After you have completed the document, be sure to write a reflection on the process and answer the following prompts:

  • Explain the purpose of behavior management in early childhood educational settings and why it is important to think proactively.
  • Explain how you think your student will react to this behavior plan.
  • Describe what else you would do to encourage positive behavior that does not “fit” on the plan.
  • Summarize the conversation you will have with next year’s teacher in regard to your student’s behavior plan.
