Identify the inappropriate behavior in concrete terms, naming it with verbs in the present tense.

Interview the student and other teachers concerning the behavior and situations prior to and following the behavior.</p> <p>5. Consider all observations and interviews when devising the intervention program.</p> <p>6.
