Social Emotional Development: Targeted Interventions and Supports
Developing a behavior support plan
Some children may need a behavior support plan to address their challenging behaviors. A behavior support plan contains elements such as descriptions of what triggered the behavior, new skills that will replace the behaviors, strategies to prevent these behaviors in the future, and consequences if the behavior continues. Before developing and implementing a behavior support plan, it is important to establish a support team of people who are involved in the child’s life, and to engage them in a thoughtful planning process.
