Behavior Modification Program


To help students modify their behavior in a positive way


Defining problem behavior - Discover a baseline collection of data

Develop the Least Restrictive Environment

Principles of Learning: Operant Conditioning

Research/evidence-based techniques

Accountability - Students need to "own" their behavior. Students must understand cause/effect

Consistency - Staff must consistently address behaviors and apply appropriate feedback/consequences to students


Long Term Goals - Creation of a level-system to encourage students to improve behavior. Students receive more and more privileges and rewards when they reach a certain goal or benchmark

Short Term Goals - Reinforce (reward, strengthen) appropriate/positive behavior. Weaken (punish) inappropriate/negative behavior.

Motivation - Find what motivates students to improve behavior

Positive Expectations - Staff needs to display positive expectations and expect students to reach their goals. Students must believe in themselves: Staff must exemplify this characteristic
