FBAFunctionalBehavioral Assessment

Your paragraph here

Topic/Purpose:Think about a time you had either one or more students in your classroom that just kept disrupting classroom instruction. What did you do when that student or those students were disrupting? Would you of handled that situation differently? Usually when students disrupt classroom instruction, the teacher will immediately address the problem with verbal reprimands, punishment, etc. This may stop the student from undesired behavior in the short term, but soon enough the behavior will come out again. Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs) are conducted to look beyond the behavior itself and figure out why the specific behavior is occurring.

Course Performance Objectives:

- Participants will learn how to analyze an FBA to determine the antecedents that set the stage for challenging behavior.- Participants will learn how to analyze an FBA to determine the function of the behavior.-Participants will learn how to conduct an FBA.
