The procedural steps in conducting a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) will be modeled, along with the necessary teaming to roll out student specific, evidence-based interventions. Data informed decision-making will be taught to ensure precise behavioral tracking and targeted interventions to best support the student in all intended educational settings. Intervention fidelity and progress monitoring will be addressed to effectively link socially appropriate replacement behaviors to a supporting student-level Positive Behavior Support Plan. Attendees in this series will learn how to conduct an FBA and the requisite behavioral decision making process to successfully connect interventions to a technically adequate Positive Behavior Support Plan. Explicit areas of focus will include the process of making data informed decisions and fidelity based progress monitoring at both the targeted and tertiary levels of student support.

  • Utilize an MTSS model to address disproportionate representation of culturally and linguistically diverse students in AEDY programs.
