Functions of Behavior: FBA

 

Key elements in this chapter include a discussion of how to determine when a behavior intervention plan is necessary and the purpose of developing behavior intervention plans (also referred to as behavior support plans or behavior reduction plans). An overview of various functions of behavior, and the components of functional behavior assessment (FBA) is presented. Video vignettes of Joseph, Cameron and Levi illustrate and provide practice on taking A – B – C (sequence analysis) data. These data are used to develop a hypothesis of the function of these children’s behavior. This training program is based on the RBT Task List and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the RBT credential. This program is offered independent of the BACB.
