What are you waiting for?? Head on over to The Organized Classroom Blog now to see what I am talking about... and then come back please for the rest of the post!! :-)
Once you read that post, you can pick up a copy of an ABC chart here. Go to the middle of the page. You will find a link to a blank ABC Chart. I really like this one because it includes a box for putting down a possible function. There are many other free ones online, but this is my favorite so far.
Triggers are so unique for each child and it takes a lot of taking data, analyzing the data, and trying different things to see what will work for a child. Once you determine the patterns and the function, you should be able to start making progress with helping a child.
I have some more ideas of how to expand on this in later posts, but leave me a comment with your answer to the following question:
What else do you want to or need to know about triggers?
