Lay Advocacy: FBAs and BIPs

August 6, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Please join The Family Resource Network
 and Starbridge, Inc.
for a half-day advocacy workshop:
Functional Behavior Assessments and Behavior Intervention Plans
Sometimes a child’s behaviors interfere with learning. Students and teachers need strategies to minimize those behaviors and to maximize learning opportunities. This workshop will explore the nature of a child’s behavior and when a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) should be requested. An FBA helps to determine why a student engages in behaviors that impede learning. We will share tools and strategies to support student success, and what types of supports and services might be needed. 

¨ Understand the terms Functional Behavioral Assessment and Behavior Intervention Plan 
¨ Understand the process by which these are developed 
¨ Be able to actively participate in the process of developing these plans
