Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)
A functional behavior assessment can be used when the intensity, duration, or type of interfering behavior creates safety concerns or impacts a child’s development.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about functional behavior assessment (FBA).
- Applying FBA in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The FBA module will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning:
|Lesson||Time to Complete|
|A Case for FBA||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of FBA||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for FBA||25 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using FBA||25 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring FBA||25 minutes|
|Applying FBA||10 minutes|
If you leave the module prior to finishing, your place within the module will be saved. Simply log in, go to the module, and resume your lesson.
