Behavior Intervention Plans Based on Tier 3 Functional Behavioral Assessments

Show Summary Details


The purpose of FBA is to develop effective interventions. It is all-too-common in schools for evaluation teams to conduct FBAs and then not use the results for intervention, thereby negating the value of the FBA. This chapter begins by describing effective antecedent, behavior teaching, and consequence interventions and a step-by-step process for selecting the most appropriate interventions given the results of the FBA using a competing pathway model. Practical forms are presented for converting the interventions into broader plans that can be monitored for fidelity and effectiveness. The process of conducting a Tier 3 FBA and developing and implementing a corresponding behavior intervention plan is described in a case example.

Keywords: behavior intervention plan; antecedent interventions; behavior teaching interventions; consequence interventions; fidelity of implementation; functional behavioral assessment; competing pathways model
