Why do we use replacement behaviors?
Positive behavior intervention strategy

Appropriate replacement that
serves the same function
as the problem behavior

Without teaching a positive behavior the child will come up with one on their own

Be proactive, not reactive
4 Functions for behaviors
Types of replacement behaviors/Examples
PB- When asked to complete independent math assignments, the student talks back to adults.
RB- Teach appropriate ways for student to request assistance, a break, or alternate to activity.
Examples: Student shows "manipulative" to express frustration with work
PB- A student yells out answers before being called on and frequently interrupts peers.
RB- Teach delayed gratification(ability to have patience, self control for a later reward)
Examples: Praise, PBIS Tickets, or can be rewards received for following expectations
Obtain a desired item:
PB-When John wants a toy he intimidates and uses aggression to get what he wants.
RB-Teach skills for obtaining desired object.
Examples: Role play with peers to show effectiveness of alternative ways.
PB- Each day Suzi becomes hostile to her peers because she is hungry.
RB-Everyday before lunch give Suzi a snickers bar.
