Description: This training will provide an overview of the process of conducting a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) and how to interpret data collected and develop a Positive Behavior Intervention Plan (PBIP) to address the needs of students with interfering behaviors. Through this training, participants will develop an understanding of how to evaluate and address variables that trigger and maintain behavior: identifying antecedents and consequences that surround behavior, describing interfering behavior in measurable terms, and determining the function of the interfering behavior.  This information will be presented using evidence-based practices and Wisconsin DPI’s best practices with the understanding that each school district may have different procedures.  

Understanding: This workshop is not designed to address student-specific needs but will provide the participants with basic knowledge and resources to assess, instruct, and support students with interfering behaviors in the educational setting

This training aligns with evaluation standards from the CESA 6 Effectiveness Project and the Educator Effectiveness (Danielson Model).  

Networking opportunities during lunch.

  • Identify the educational benefits of completing an FBA and PBIP
