Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)

This is a service (primarily for new referrals) in which we determine the function (cause) of problem behavior, measure skill level, and develop recommendations for an individualized program.


The FBA includes several steps.

  1. Define:  We first define the problem (“target”) behavior.
  2. Assess:  We conduct direct observation, review past data and records (if any); and then collect, compare, and analyze information related to the target behavior.
  3. Hypothesize:  The next step is to determine the function of the target behavior, either through direct intervention or experimental analysis.
  4. Plan:  Last, we create a detailed implementation plan to change the target behavior.
