Ms. T at Journey of a Substitute Teacher is hosting a behavior management linky party! Ahhh, behavior management...the theme of my life. I spend half of my planning period every day checking behavior charts, and the rest of my day trying to manage many different lovely behaviors :) Actually, I really like behavior so this is a great linky party for me to be participating in!
I wanted to share a resource I got in an online graduate class (I'm currently working on a certification in Moderate to Severe Disabilities). DISCLAIMER: I did NOT create this resource, I have simply found it helpful and am sharing. This is a Functional Behavior Assessment form that can be used to track challenging behaviors throughout the day. Most of the time, FBAs are very detailed and require a day to completely record student behavior. Ummm, WHO HAS TIME FOR THAT??? This is a resource I have been able to use because it is quick and easy. Every time the student demonstrates a behavior of concern, mark this chart with a number. First, you put the number under the behavior column in whatever area it belongs. Then, put the number in the correct perceived function column. Finally, put the number under the correct consequence column. Add notes as necessary to help you remember what happened. I know that is confusing, but I've included a few sample numbers so you can see what I'm talking about.
I've added this file to Google Docs as a Word document so that you can change the setting, behaviors, etc. It looks really weird in Google Docs, but if you download the original it SHOULD work just fine. If not, please comment on this post and I'll be glad to send you the original. Please feel free to use this resource, but don't claim it as your own :) Thanks and enjoy :)
GRAB IT HERE!
