Summary/Hypothesis Statement

Jack is a smart and outgoing boy in Kindergarten. He often has trouble controlling his emotions
when presented with situations that are undesirable to him. Jack tends to act out, sometimes
violently, which is disruptive and at times dangerous for other students. Jack is potentially acting
out in this manner in order to avoid an undesired task, because the knows that he will be sent
away when this kind of behavior is demonstrated. A Behavior Intervention Plan will be put into
place in order to decrease this problem behavior and increase the amount of goal directed
behavior for Jack.
