Functional Behavioral Assessment: An Interactive Training Module. User's Manual & Facilitator's Guide. Second Edition.
Liaupsin, Carl J.; Scott, Terry M.; Nelson, C. Michael
This user's manual and facilitator's guide is intended for use with an accompanying interactive CD-ROM to provide a complete training program in conducting functional behavioral assessments (FBAs) as required under the 1997 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Chapter 1 provides general information for users, such as system requirements, an overview of the CD, time requirements, instructional options, CD installation, and user tips. Chapter 2 presents facilitator information for group presentation, such as facilitator prerequisites, training schedule and format, presentation materials and equipment, advance organizers, and participant handouts. Chapter 3 is the facilitator's script, which is organized into the six phases of an FBA: (1) collecting historical and background data; (2) determining the target behavior; (3) making direct observations; (4) generating a hypothesis; (5) verifying the hypothesis; and (6) determining the function of the behavior. Chapter 4 provides reproducible resource materials, and chapter 5 includes reproducible case study data collection and documentation forms. The CD includes an overview, the tutorial (organized into the same six FBA steps), and sample case studies. (DB)
