FBA/BIP:  Beyond Behaviorism: Shifting the Lens When Assessing and Supporting Behaviors 

Many experts are working tirelessly to shift the behavioral paradigm away from the traditional behavioral approach and towards what current relational and neuroscience research has taught us. When we know better, we do better! Let’s take that information and use it to redesign tools we use frequently in schools today - functional behavioral assessments and positive behavioral intervention plans. If you are struggling with these processes, if they don’t align with your current philosophy and belief system then this workshop is for you! Participants will get a deep dive into how to make these common processes more trauma sensitive, neurodiversity-affirming, and aligned with current research. 

  • 1. Participants will develop a behavioral philosophy. 

  • 2. Participants will learn what a FBA & BIP is and when it’s required.

  • 3. Participants will learn practical strategies to assess and support behaviors. 

  • 4. Participants will learn about the wave of distress students experience, which manifests as behaviors that interfere with learning. 

  • 5. Participants will learn ways to calm students when distress occurs. 

  • 6. Participants will learn strategies to make data-based decisions within the FBA and BIP.
