Challenging behavior in the classroom can feel unpredictable and difficult to understand. This webinar decodes the underlying motivations of behavior helping teachers feel more confident and competent.

The underlying motivation for challenging behavior is not always obvious. This webinar presents the basics of using antecedent, behavior, consequence (ABC) data to determine the function of challenging behavior.
