ABC Data helps us determine the function of a behavior. Take (Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence) data before determining the appropriate intervention for a behavior. The Google Form will organize this data for you and give you graphs of what is happening to help you determine the next steps.
WHAT IS ABC DATA?
ABC data is a recording of what is happening before, during, and after a behavior. It is also referred to as narrative recording or three-term contingency. When taking ABC data, it is helpful to be as detailed as possible, so that there is little room for subjective interpretation.
WHAT DOES ABC STAND FOR?
A: Antecedent- what comes before the behavior
B: Behavior- what the behavior looks like, sounds like
C: Consequence- what happens right after the behavior is emitted
