Do you have a student who isn’t responding to the behavior interventions you and your team have tried? Are you looking for a way to better understand your student’s behavior and help them self-regulate? Functional Behavior Assessment, or FBA, is a process that involves identifying behaviors that interfere with a student’s learning or the learning of others and the events surrounding those behaviors. Through interview and observation, your team determines the likely reason for the interfering behavior in order to establish a more positive way for the student to communicate with others. The FBA also helps your team develop strategies to support the student’s behavior and learning.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- What an FBA is and why is it needed
- Basic principles of behavior and how they relate to the four functions of behavior
- The steps in the FBA process—utilizing indirect and direct assessment measures to analyze antecedents and consequences to determine function
- How to apply data gathered in the FBA process to develop a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP)
