Participants will learn an efficient FBA (Functional Behavioral Assessment) process that:

  • Yields a clear, concise classroom-teacher friendly report
  • Helps every adult consistently manage the targeted behaviors(s)
  • Provides intervention to change behavior, not just manage it
  • Is so efficient it can be used proactively

Bring your laptop and a particular student in mind and leave with a drafted FBA. Past participants have called this the best FBA process they’ve ever seen!
