Self-management at its basic level is an individual engaging in one (more desired) behavior to decrease the occurrence of another (less desired) behavior later in time. Self-management is a behavioral intervention that teaches children how to recognize their own behavior, to decide which behaviors they want to increase and decrease, to set goals, and to select strategies to meet their goals. Self-management has been demonstrated to be an effective intervention for children with and without disabilities across age ranges in multiple settings.
