School-Based Interventions : Behavioral Planning

Detailed Definition of Behavioral Planning

Establishing an individualized set of strategies in order to effectively anticipate, prevent, and respond to problematic behaviors.

Students whose behavioral difficulties occur because of a disability (for example, a student with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder who doesn’t stay seated or jumps out of line) may be placed on a behavioral plan. A specialized team determines specific strategies for addressing the student’s behaviors that interfere with the learning environment.
