Support for School

When teachers use the ABC approach they can learn to prevent problems by altering the Antecedents (events that occur before the challenging behaviour). They can begin to see that common antecedents can be physically based, environmentally based, related to specific times, performance or skill based, by a demand, or even by a specific person.

Teachers will benefit from support to manage academic performance and environmental factors such as:

  • Providing close monitoring and supervision
  • Increasing cuing and prompts
  • Addressing skill deficits
