Antecedent-based interventions (ABI) comprise an evidence-based practice derived from applied behavior analysis (ABA) and are used to address both interfering (e.g., disruptive, repetitive, stereotypical) and on-task behaviors. By definition, the principle of ABI describes a relationship between a behavior and an antecedent stimulus; that is, an event or condition that occurs before or as a behavior appears. This module will provide information on ABI strategies.
