A student with behavior changes after a brain injury is often seen as a “problem” in the classroom. The ABC approach to understanding behavior – antecedent, behavior and consequence – is explained. This tip card explains why antecedent management of behavior for children and students with brain injury is more effective than traditional behavior management approaches. It gives checklists for identifying changes in behavior, defining behavior, assessing behavior, evaluating behavior, and using successful strategies at home and in school to help the child or student with an acquired brain injury.
For more detail, see the manual Strategies for Managing Challenging Behaviors of Students with Brain Injuries.
