A contingency map is essentially a graphic organizer, or a visual problem solver. It shows the students the outcome of different reactions to a potential problem. They are a way to help students understand the outcomes of their behavior in response to specific events.
How Are They Used?
You can use them proactively to help students plan for and practice reactions to potential situations that trigger challenging behavior. They also can be used to cue students as visual reminders when those triggers occur.
