Behavior Assessment and Intervention Plan Development for School Based Providers

May 8

6:00pm - 9:00pm


The purpose of this workshop is to build the capacity of the school-based clinician to address maladaptive behaviors in the school setting. Schools are increasingly becoming de-facto mental health providers; they provide a place to observe, study, and intervene in behavior, in order to assist children in becoming socially and emotionally successful in school and in life. This workshop will provide the foundation for Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Behavior Intervention Planning (BIP).

Learning Outcomes
Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Facilitate the collaborative process of Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavior Intervention Planning.
  • Summarize the 3 essential components of effective FBA/BIPs.
  • Analyze the types of data collection sources needed to develop a FBA.
  • Synthesize a hypothesis of the function of student behavior - functional behavioral summary statement.
  • Describe replacement behaviors that serve the same function as identified in the FBA.
  • Formulate a direct instructional plan for these replacement behaviors in the BIP.
