Functional Behavioral Assessment and Intervention with Emotional/Behaviorally Disordered Students: In Pursuit of State of the Art
Waguespack, Angela; Vaccaro, Terrence; Continere, Lauren
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v2 n4 p463-474 2006
The application of functional behavioral assessment (FBA) procedures for the purposes of developing interventions for students with emotional and behavioral disorders (E/BD) has received considerable attention since the 1997 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The purpose of this paper is to review the literature addressing the use of FBA with E/BD students in school settings and to discuss implications for a "state of the art" model that integrates empirically supported procedures with promising practices to be implemented within the ecology of current educational systems.
