  • Who has been involved in the FBA process?
  • Point out that Formal Functional behavioral assessment happens only when we are assured that the classroom in functioning at it’s optimal level. That there is a FIRM FOUNDATION, that the nurturing and supportive relationships, Supportive environment, are in place. It can be used to determine to decide what targeted emotional supports and/or intensive interventions are necessary.
  • Discuss observations formal/ informal ….Systematic or informal anecdotal notes. More than one observation required across settings.

    1. 1. Introduction for Positive Behavioral Support HealthyCHILD Training
    2. 2. Definition of PSB PBS is a process for understanding and resolving the problem behavior of children that is based on values and empirical research. It offers and approach for developing and understanding of why the child engages in problem behavior and strategies' for preventing the occurrence of problem behavior while teaching the child new skills. Positive behavior support offers a holistic approach that considers all factors that impact the child and the child’s behavior. It can be used to address problem behaviors that range from aggression, tantrums, and property destruction to social withdrawal.
    3. 3. PBS The Essential Steps Building a Behavior Support Team Person- Centered Planning Functional Behavior Assessment Hypothesis Development Behavior support Plan Development Monitoring Outcomes
    4. 4. Building a Team O Who do you bring to the table…………… O Educator O Family O Therapists O Instructional /administrative personnel O Medical professionals O People who transport the child, Bus Driver, family member etc.
    5. 5. Person Centered Planning O Person centered planning is a key feature of positive behavior support for young children with problem behavior and families that are committed to a collaborative team approach. O Provides a process for bringing the team together to discuss visions and dreams for the child. O Person Centered Planning uses group facilitation techniques
    6. 6. Functional Behavior Assessment Is a process used to develop understanding and determine function of a child’s behavior.
    7. 7. How does this fit with the Pyramid model?
    8. 8. FBA Tools O Observations- The foundation O ABC recording and Analysis O Interviews. O Behavior Rating scales O Brainstorming functions of behavior.
    9. 9. Functions O To Avoid…….. O Sensory stimulation O Attention O Demands O Tasks or activities O People O Activities
    10. 10. Functions O To Obtain O Sensory stimulation O Attention O Objects and Materials O People O Activities O Help
    11. 11. Hypothesis Development O What is a hypothesis? O A prediction O A best guess O Taking into account all of the info. O Predictors, circumstances, settings, and purpose.
    12. 12. Sample Hypotheses O Nathan appears to use tantrums to request help and objects. When these tantrums occur, the caregiver is likely to provide attention, the requested object, or another preferred object. Nathan does not make requests verbally, but will bring an adult to desired object. If he does not receive a consequence for his request, Nathan will have tantrum.
    13. 13. Behavior Support Plan Development O Prevention strategies: strategies used to reduce the likelihood that the behavior will occur O Replacement Skills: skills to teach that will replace the problem behavior O Consequence Strategies: Guidelines for how the ADULTS will respond to the problem behavior in ways that will NOT maintain the behavior positive reinforcement O Long Term Strategies: Long Term goals that help the child and the family in meeting their goals for the child.
    14. 14. Monitoring Outcomes O Effectiveness of the behavior support plan must be monitored. O Measurement of changes in problem behavior/ achievement of new skills and lifestyle outcomes
    15. 15. Why is this important? O PBS and FBA are common processes used by most local school systems. O It is a researched based method of problem solving around children’s behavior. O It is effective!
