8-Week Online Course: Introduction to Functional Behavioral Assessment and Behavior Intervention Plans
Audience: Educators, Other District/School Staff | Topic: Special Education | Hosted by: Office of Special Education
Requirement for School / District Staff: N/A
This 8-week online course, offered in both fall and spring semesters, is intended for school and district-level teams. The purpose of the course is to support the team in developing a functional behavioral Assessment (FBA) that accurately identifies a student’s function of behavior in order to develop more effective Behavior Intervention Plans. Team-based approaches to completing such activities are always best practice and in the best interest of the student, school, and family. By the end of the course, participating teams will be able to successfully complete Basic Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) and Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP). The course provides a foundation for understanding FBAs and provides an opportunity for practice in the completion of FBAs and BIPs. Support from instructors will be given in the form of a discussion board with no face-to-face opportunities provided. Up to 30 CDE contact hours are available. These clock hours can be used towards the special education and behavioral health licensure renewal requirements.
- Each team member must complete an individual registration form and list 2 to 5 school- or district-level team members, including a special education teacher and a mental health staff. ALL team members must register individually.
The application for the 8-week course will open on August 28, 2023.
