Think about a time you had either one or more students in your classroom that just kept disrupting classroom instruction.  What did you do when that student or those students were disrupting? Would you of handled that situation differently? Usually when students disrupt classroom instruction, the teacher will immediately address the problem with verbal reprimands, punishment, etc. This may stop the student from undesired behavior in the short term, but soon enough the behavior will come out again. Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs) are conducted to look beyond the behavior itself and figure out why the specific behavior is occurring.

When students are showing undesired behavior teachers will usually discipline the student. This is usually just a short term solution for the problem behavior.  The problem with this is that the problem behavior will most likely show up again.  Teachers need figure out what is causing the behavior and how to solve behaviors long term.

FBA: Functional Behavioral Assessment

Return to Jenna Schrumpf's Portfolio Page



Welcome

Welcome to this mini course on Functional Behavior Assessments. I am so excited to be working with you. Please read below for a brief introduction on FBAs and then click on the link to find out course requirements and what it will entail.

Think about a time you had either one or more students in your classroom that just kept disrupting classroom instruction. What did you do when that student or those students were disrupting? Would you of handled that situation differently? Usually when students disrupt classroom instruction, the teacher will immediately address the problem with verbal reprimands, punishment, etc. This may stop the student from undesired behavior in the short term, but soon enough the behavior will come out again. Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs) are conducted to look beyond the behavior itself and figure out why the specific behavior is occurring.

Please go to the link below to find out more about this course. http://jschrumpf.edu.glogster.com/blank-8898/


Course Objectives

Course-level objectives

  • Participants will learn how to analyze an FBA to determine the antecedents that set the stage for challenging behavior.
  • Participants will learn how to analyze an FBA to determine the function of the behavior.
  • Participants will learn how to conduct an FBA.


Course Units

Click on each unit below to complete!

Unit 1: Introduction to Principles of Reinforcement and Punishmentt

Participants will learn an overview of concepts surrounding positive and negative reinforcement to increase or maintain behavior and punishment to decrease behavior.

Unit 2: Foundations of Functional Behavior Assessment

Participants will learn and participate in a discussion about what constitutes functions of behavior and an introduction to the direct method of functional behavior assessment.

Unit 3: Conducting and Analyzing the Functional Behavior Assessment

Participants will learn how to conduct your own functional behavior assessment and analyze the results

Unit 4: Developing Function Based Intervention Methods

Participants will learn and discuss how changes to antecedents and consequences of challenging behavior can be made and how to reinforce replacement behaviors.
