ECE 201 Week 5 Final Paper,
In this paper I will be discussing the various behavior problems like screaming, kicking, and biting. Therefore in this process I will tell you the various purposes in behavior management that are needed in early childhood education settings. Thus I will also discuss three strategies teachers may use to determine the functions of challenging behavior. It also includes the design of an individual support plan for each of the challenging behaviors that have been considered to discuss.
Therefore this behavior management is very much important in the stages of early childhood education setting which will develop or maintain various sort of order in the classroom. Thus, the most important reason in order to have behavior management in the early childhood education setting is considered as the safety of the students. Therefore it is necessary for various views like proper character development, academic studying, living with others, personal habits, and physical development of the body (Rogers ,2007).
If we consider a five year old children and all they do is scream, bite, and kick each other for all day. This is not at all a very safe environment for other students in a classroom. Therefore it’s also not very orderly in the classroom. Therefore the things like this are very much important to have behavior management and also rules in the classroom. A functional behavioral assessment looks at problem behaviors by analyzing behaviors and the interventions of these behaviors (Tenenbaum, 1986).
Therefore the strategies to determine functional behavior assessment is
1) Understanding the nature and the causes of problem behaviors and
2) Developing cost effective interventions for changing behavior
3) Reducing the changing behavior
The way of performing a functional behavioral assessment is made using eight steps as
- Define the challenging behaviors.
- Select and describe settings for observation. You should
- Select the observation type
- Develop data collection procedures
- Analyze the learning environment….
