Functional Behavioral Assessments
A Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) focuses on identifying the function or purpose of specific behaviors. Assessments are used to develop behavior intervention plans that are based on an informed understanding of the cause of the specific behavior.
The most efficient assessment method needed to identify an appropriate treatment plan will be used and may include one or all of the following:
- Meet with families to discuss and identify the needs of the individual
- Observe the individual at the setting in which they are experiencing difficulties to improve service planning
- Conduct a functional analysis of the behavior to identify factors that are influencing its occurrence
- Summarize and review assessment results with the individual and their family and discuss tentative treatment plans and get their input
