Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) and Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP) are terms frequently used in the education community. But what do these terms really mean? How does one determine if the FBA and BIP are of high quality? This webinar provides an understanding of the indicators that can be used to determine if an FBA and BIP are technically sound and socially meaningful. The presenter goes through the FBA and BIP process showing what should happen at each step and the questions to ask to ensure the process results in high quality intervention supports.
