We recommend viewing the ABC’s webinars in the following order:
Behaviour Basics: The “B” in ABC
The “A” in ABC: Antecedents and Prevention
The “C” in ABC: Consequences
Start here for the ABC webinars! We recommend viewing them in the following order: B, A & C. All behaviour happens for a reason! This session will provide an overview of both appropriate and challenging behaviours.
Antecedents and Prevention
This session provides information on antecedents: all of the triggers or events that come before the behaviour. Antecedents are cues for behaviour; just like a red light cues us to stop driving. In this presentation, we look at discovering different types of antecedents, different strategies to use, and how to figure out if the strategies are working.
This session provides information on a key principle of Applied Behaviour Analysis: the consequence. Participants will discover how the consequence (what happens directly after the behaviour) can change future behaviour. Everyone will leave with new information in regards to different types of consequences, how to choose reinforcers, and strategies to use consequences effectively.
