Functional Behavioral Assessments and Behavioral Intervention Plans (Education Matters! A Webinar Series for Family and Youth Peer Advocates)
When: Wednesday, March 2 - 1:00 PM
Duration: 1 hours 30 minutes
Sometimes a child’s behaviors interfere with learning. Students and teachers need strategies to minimize those behaviors to maximize learning opportunities. This workshop will explore the nature of a child’s behavior and when a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) should be requested. An FBA helps to determine why a student engages in behaviors that impede learning. We will describe the process by which a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) and Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP) are developed, share tools and strategies to support student success, and provide tips to support students and parents to actively participate in the process of developing these plans.
