An example of this would be a child with attention deficient disorder that is easily distracted by noises in the classroom, too many visual posters that can distract their attention; and other stimuli which results in the student losing focus and behaving negatively in class. These students begin to display negative behavior upon the visual overload of the aforementioned stimuli and a history can be chronicled by the teacher to remove some of the stimuli responsible for distracting the ADD student by removing some of the monikers that facilitate the behavior displayed by the child. This is the role that antecedent can play in influencing a child with angry and aggressive behavior as a teacher that pays attention to the history of the child can deduce what is the catalyst for some of his or her outbursts and take preventative measures to reduce some of these catalysts.
