Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) 

 

A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will assess a client’s behaviors. The goal of this assessment is to identify how and why an individual engages in certain challenging behaviors.

 

Once we identify why the client engages in this behavior, we develop a function-based treatment plan to decrease targeted challenging behavior(s) and increase replacement behaviors that are more functional for the client.

Skill Assessments:  

A BCBA may conduct various skill assessments to help determine areas of strength and to guide treatment.

 

Skill assessments may include formal assessments, such as the ABLLS-R, VB-MAPP, AFLS, SIB-R, PEAK, among others.

Behavior Intervention Plan:  

A Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) takes the observations made in an FBA and turns them into a concrete plan of action for managing an individual’s behavior.

 

A BIP will include rigorous definitions for the behaviors that are targeted.

 

Included in the BIP are antecedent interventions, things that staff and parents should always have in place to minimize the likelihood of the behavior occurring, and consequence interventions that will dictate the exact steps that a staff and parents should take when the problem behavior occurs, so that all parties involved are consistent. 

Direct Treatment:

Once our BCBA develops a treatment plan, our competent Behavior Technician will work 1 on 1 with your child to implement the behavior programs and collect ongoing data on your child’s response to these programs. 

 

Our Behavior Technicians are required to obtain the Registered Behavior Technician credential as part of their employment with us.

 

This means our BT staff have completed or are in the process of completing a rigorous and comprehensive training in Applied Behavior Analysis.

 

Additionally, Behavior Technicians receive on-going training and clinical supervision to ensure the highest quality of service.
