Teaching Educators to do Behavior Assessments

Helping Educators With Behavior Assessments

Problem behaviors impede a student’s ability to learn. In order to provide effective strategies to prevent or reduce problem behaviors, the teacher must be able to assess what is causing them. Many studies have shown that teachers can learn to implement behavior interventions and assessments. This presentation will outline and provide materials for training educators to do behavior assessments in the classroom.

During this webinar you will learn to:

  • Identify the purpose of behavior assessments
  • Name the steps involved in carrying out behavior assessments
  • Write operational definitions of behaviors within different scenarios
  • Identify the four functions of behavior
  • Determine antecedent conditions from an observation
  • Fill out an ABC recording form from virtual observations of real children with behavior problems
  • Analyze data and formulate a hypothesis concerning the function of behavior
  • Implement a feasible teacher training program to train teachers to do behavior assessments in classroom settings
