Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) Process

Reading Time: < 1 minute

An FBA consists of information-gathering procedures that
result in a hypothesis about the function(s) that the behavior is
serving for the student. The process also results in the identification of environmental antecedents (what happened before
the behavior occurred) and consequences (what happened
after the behavior occurred) that are maintaining the behavior.
The information gathered is used to develop an effective and
efficient behavior plan.
