Functional Behavioral Assessment and Behavior Support Planning
Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) is a process for identifying the events that reliably predict and maintain problem behavior. A Behavior Support Plan (BSP) then takes the observations made in an FBA and turns them into a concrete plan of action for managing a student's behavior. This two-day training will focus on practical approaches to developing effective FBAs and BSPs. Day One will focus on developing both the systems capacity for developing FBA/BSPs. It will also provide attendees an opportunity to develop a FBA for a selected student and leave with a plan to finalize the FBA back at school. Day Two will provide an opportunity to revisit the FBA developed on day one and critique it, refine it or change it. As a result individuals will gain competency in both facilitating and conducting this process.
Who should attend? A team (at least two people) consisting of staff who are selected by their School Leadership Team to develop the capacity to conduct FBA/BSPs, including those with expertise working with students with challenging behavior (counselors, behavior specialists etc.)
