The child’s environmental conditions can be altered to reduce the likelihood of the problem. This classic A-B-C functional analysis with intervention planning worksheet can be used to collect information about what came before a behavior (antecedents), the behavior itself, and the consequences of the behavior. It is also likely that a particular subject is challenging to client 1, or interaction with other people is difficult for him. The components of the model include stimulus, motivating operations, individual variables, response, and consequence.

Behavior has consequences and in operant conditioning terms these can be seen to reinforce or punish a behavior, making it more or less likely to occur in the future. These may include the effects on the immediate social and physical environment that are caused by the occurrence of the behavior and the function these events may serve as far as maintaining the occurrence of the behavior.Ecological And Setting Events Analysis: This analysis evaluates settings where the behavior occurs most frequently, as well as events that may occur some time prior to the occurrence of the behavior and have an effect.
