What is Function-Based support?

(Sugai, 2007)

  • Foundations in behavioral theory, applied behavior analysis, and positive behavior support
  • Attention to environmental context
  • Emphasis on function of behavior
  • Focus on teaching effective, efficient and relevant behaviors
  • Attention to behavior of implementers


Functional Approach Logic 

(Sugai, 2007)

  • Behaviors are maintained by consequence events (function)
    • Positive or negative reinforcement 
  • Behaviors are occassioned by antecedent events
    • Relate antecedent to occurrence of behavior and likelihood of consequence event
  • Changing behaviors requires consideration of maintaining consequences
