Managing challenging behavior is key to effective teaching and classroom management. This course will explain functional behavior assessments. FBA’s are useful for all students who exhibit challenging behavior, and not just a tool for students with disabilities. As an evidence-based process, the functional behavior assessment recognizes that challenging behaviors by students are used because they serve a function. Positive and negative reinforcement as well as sensory stimulation are functions that are discussed in detail. You’ll also learn about the relationships between antecedents, behaviors and consequences plus the use of ABC charts. The course is also chock-full of examples of ABC charts that will help you put these ideas into practice.
