Functional behaviour assessment

PublishingPageContent

Functional behaviour assessment (FBA) is a process for collecting information to help determine why problem behaviour occurs and to serve as a basis for the development of an Individual Behaviour Support Plan (IBSP). Research has shown that interventions developed from an FBA are more likely to be effective in reducing rates of problem behaviour.

FBA aims to:

  1. define behaviour in specific, observable and measurable terms
  2. determine what aspects of the environment or situation contribute towards the behaviour
  3. identify the consequences which maintain the behaviour.

Schools can access the online FBA tool to work through a simple FBA process. An experienced teacher may conduct a more detailed FBA.
