Items for Consideration when Developing
a Behavior Plan
For children who need and respond to a behavior plan, a very simple plan that addresses a few behaviors and interventions is adequate. Anything more is too overwhelming to be useful to the people implementing the plan. The following is a compilation of items from a number of behavior plans. Much more is included than would be appropriate for use with one child. Even if many items seem to apply, it is best to select a few meaningful and manageable areas.
Behavior intervention plan for (child's name) grade — Begin the plan with a list of items included, such as: Problematic behaviors
Intervention strategies that may be used to affect a given behavior (A
brief commentary about the child could be inserted at whatever point
seems most meaningful.)
Information and interventions regarding interactions with peers and
Criteria for evaluation and review.
Examples of behaviors that a child may need to control, behaviors that need to be fostered, and behaviors that need modifying to a more acceptable form: an actual plan should only include the most relevant.
