Research has long supported the practice of conducting functional behavioral assessments (FBAs) in order to develop the proper behavior support strategies for students with behavioral difficulties. This workshop will review the four core functions of challenging behavior. Each function will be described, and examples will be reviewed. The FBA process and procedures will be covered in terms of descriptive and experimental analyses. Emphasis will be place on collecting informant data, direct observations, and experimental functional analyses. All information presented in this workshop will be summarized within the context of developing a comprehensive FBA report.
