Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA):
A Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will meet and interview the parent(s) or caregiver(s), and observe the child or individual. Behavior assessments identify behavior patterns and the reason for particular behaviors. Through observation, testing, and evaluation, the BCBA determines proactive and reactive strategies to help move toward positive change in behavior. Based on evaluation and intensity of need, recommendation of service(s) will be provided.
The BCBA conducts an FBA to determine the environmental variables that affect and maintain the problematic behavior(s), and develops an individually-tailored effective behavior intervention plan to transform identified behaviors.
