Behavior Doctor Seminars’ Version of the Competing Pathway Chart
(Think of the ABC's of Behavior)

Trigger (Antecedent) Target Behavior impacT (Consequence)
This is what sets the behavior in motion. This is the behavior you’d like to Target for change. This is what the student is gaining or escaping by engaging in the behavior.


Now you can develop a behavioral intervention plan based on the function of the behavior
(what the student is trying to gain or escape)

Revise the Environment Replace the Behavior Reframe Your Response
We must make changes in the environment to set the student up for success.  This might be mnemonic cues, changes in seating, changes in procedures etc. We can’t just tell students to be good.  We have to teach them what we want the replacement behavior to look like, sound like, and feel like.  This can be done with video modeling, social stories, video self-modeling, peer mentoring, peer modeling etc. Knowing what the student is trying to gain or escape, allows us to know when to give behavior-specific praise, when to ignore, and when to implement procedures to discourage inappropriate behavior.


Here are samples that have been implemented for specific behaviors from the Behavior Doctor Website.
