This document describes the components of Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavior Intervention Plan. It is based on Illinois State Board of Education’s guidance. However, the components are not “state-specific” and can be used in other states.
Included are descriptions of the target behavior (skill or performance deficit), what a hypothesis may be, summary of previous interventions attempted, replacement behaviors for the target behaviors, strategies or supports that will be utilized, motivators and rewards that will be implemented in order to replace the target behavior with a more appropriate behavior, restrictive disciplinary measures/crisis plan, and the data collection process.
Also included is a visual of the FBA process. It briefly describes why students engage in problematic behavior, how to properly describe the target behavior, how the data can be recorded, common antecedents, common functions, and the flow of the behavior (Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence at a Date/Time and Setting).
How do I use this? I provide this to parents when we are discussing a behavior intervention plan or a functional behavior assessment. My philosophy is to have parents as educated on the special education processes as possible so that they can be active participants.
