Abstract

Once target behaviors—and any environmental events to be measured—have been identified for data collection, they should be defined explicitly, with the help of the child or adults involved, so the information will accurately reflect those behaviors. Each definition should be as objective as possible, referring to observable characteristics of the behavior or environment.
