- Functional-Behavioral Assessment/ Behavioral Intervention Planning: When a student exhibits behavioral and/or emotional problems that interfere with their educational progress or other students, a group of trained staff collaborates to create a plan to help address those behaviors.
The Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) involves identifying the target behavior, the purpose of the behavior, and what factors maintain the behavior that is interfering with the student’s academic success.
A Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) is based upon the results of the FBA and includes a description of the target behaviors, when they are likely to occur, triggering stimuli, and intervention strategies to address the behavior.
