When Not to FBA


It’s not unusual for both educators and behavioral consultants to gravitate toward Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBAs) and Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs) when consistent behavioral challenges arise. These conventional approaches, though rooted in comprehensive analysis, can demand considerable time and effort, stretching the capacities of both consultants and teachers, often without yielding the anticipated results. This course challenges this traditional trajectory, introducing a paradigm shift by advocating for five practical, evidence-based strategies that promise a broader impact across the student population. At the heart of this course is the principle of empowering educators to proactively address behavioral challenges.
