Functional Behaviour Assessment

Assessment and Measurement of Behaviour

Duration: 3 hours
Prerequisites: Foundations of Behaviour and Function-Based Thinking
Price: $250 per participant

This module builds on the concepts and principles covered in the foundations module and prepares teachers to conduct the initial stages of a school-based functional behaviour assessment.

The functions of behaviour are explored further and looks at how behaviour can be under the control of multiple consequences.

Assessing antecedents, looking closely at both immediate triggers and setting events, assists teachers to understand the relationship between a student’s behaviour and their environment and the impact that both antecedents and consequences have on behaviour.

Participants will have the opportunity to observe video footage to practice critical assessment components including a functional behaviour assessment interview, ABC and scatterplot data collection methods.

Included in the registration is access to ABC Incident Report form, Multilit’s Functional Behaviour Assessment Interview, scatterplot forms, a variety of ABC forms and ABC graphing tools.
