Assessment of Behavior Problems

behaviorIf your child is having behavior problems in school, a functional behavioral assessment (or FBA) may be done to identify what triggers her behavioral problems and to set a direction for change. A functional behavioral assessment helps identify the purpose of your child’s misbehavior by observing her at different times and places. Once the purpose of her behavior is better understood (for example, is she trying to tell us something or does she want attention?), ideas for changing the school setting or teaching your child new ways of doing things are considered. These positive strategies may be written into your child’s IEP as a behavioral support plan.
