Practice Behavior Assessments Through Online Video
In order to provide effective strategies to prevent or reduce problem behaviors, teachers must be able to assess what is causing them. Download our virtual FBA toolkit to help you administer behavioral assessments in the classroom.
This toolkit includes:
- A behavior assessment checklist
- All behavior sheets needed to conduct behavior assessments
- A list of training resources, including ABA videos
Online, Interactive FBA Practice
The Virtual FBA gives universities the ability to provide students an online, interactive platform to practice Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs).
Student & Professor Benefits
By combining virtual FBA practice sessions with professor feedback, students are able to leave the classroom with the confidence and skills needed to conduct appropriate FBAs in the field.
Professors can now provide guided practice sessions on FBAs and analyze accurate performance by using virtual students.
Functional Behavior Assessments
The virtual environment will require students to conduct the six steps of an FBA.
Steps 1 & 2
Step 1: Identify Observable and Measurable Behaviors
Students observe clips of a 12, 4 and 3 year-old student in a classroom environment and identify the observable and measurable problem behaviors within the session.
Step 2: Create Behavior Definition
Students watch three (3) videos of different behaviors (e.g., cleaning, tantrum, speaking out of turn) and create an observable and measurable definition.
Functional Interviews & Observations
Students participating in virtual FBA sessions learn how to conduct the FBA skills listed below.
Steps 3 & 4
Step 3: Collecting and Reviewing Indirect Measures of Assessment
Students are given completed interview and motivation forms and assessments to review for three individuals with problem behavior and formulate hypotheses on functions of behavior.
Step 4: Direct Observation
Students observe three individuals with problem behaviors in various settings, fill out behavior data on the observed antecedents and consequences of specific problem behaviors.
Functional Assessment Summaries & Behavior Intervention Plans
Students learn how to summarize data, create hypotheses and develop behavior plans.
Steps 5 & 6
Step 5: Create Hypotheses
Using indirect and direct data, students create hypotheses for environmental and non-environmental factors that are contributing to the occurrences of behavior.
Step 6: Create Function-Based Behavior Plans
Users create behavior plans that include antecedent manipulations, replacement behaviors and consequence interventions with three virtual students.
