About the Course:
This comprehensive guide to conducting school-based functional behavioral assessments provides an overview of the history and current status of FBA procedures, a review of relevant ethical and professional standards, and a comprehensive discussion of the foundations of applied behavior analysis, as well as a thorough discussion of the influence of executive skills, medical conditions, emotions, and thoughts on behavior. The types and details of FBA procedures are thoroughly defined and discussed. Additionally, the core procedures of FBA are defined and expanded upon by including strategies for identifying effective reinforcers and designing and evaluating the effectiveness of function-based interventions (i.e., conducting treatment analyses as part of the assessment process). Additionally, the authors provide sample FBA reports and applied learning experiences that exemplify a behavioral skills training model of professional development. Also, guidelines for answering difficult FBA referral questions are provided in this comprehensive manual.
This course is based on the book, Conducting School-Based Functional Behavioral Assessments: A Practitioner’s Guide created by Mark W. Steege, PhD, NCSP, BCBA-D, et al. in 2019.
