Demonstrate how to complete records accurately and objectively in line with work setting requirements following an incident of challenging behaviour

NOTE: Please be aware that the information on this page is a very rough draft and has not been fact-checked so should be used accordingly (taken with a pinch of salt)! However, it should (hopefully) give you some pointers and set you off in the right direction.

Following an incident of challenging behaviour, I am required to fill out an incident report and an ABC chart. These should be filled in objectively, sticking to the facts and be free from my own views and opinions about the incident.


The incident report is an objective and detailed account of what happened and the ABC chart is an overview of what happened before, during and after an incident. A copy of our Incident Reporting Policy and Procedure is attached to this document as evidence.
