Behavior

Observ. action & response class

Infrequent event/ condition affecting main. conseq.

Events signal conseq. likely if behavior emitted

Events following behavior & increase probability

  • “Best guess” about behavior & conditions under which it is observed
  • Represents basic working unit of FBA
  • Directly guides development of BIP

TH1 for Hillary:"When Hillary sits next to Bill, Hillary whispers in his ear. Bill laughs."
  • Test manipulation?
    • Put Al in Bill’s seat.
  • Effect:
    • Hillary whispers in Al’s ear.
  • Develop new testable hypothesis!

  • Test manipulation?
    • Put Monica in Bill’s seat.

functional assessment checklist for teachers facts
Functional Assessment Checklist for Teachers “FACTS”

STEP 1: Student/ Grade: _____Clarence/5th grade_____ Date: ____January 11___________

Interviewer: ___________Sugai________ Respondent(s): ____Thomas_____

STEP 2: Student Profile: Please identify at least three strengths or contributions the student brings to school.

C. has leadership potential. Peers listened to him, and he can be very convincing and sincere. He’s academically competent and seems to be moving smoothly and successfully through the school curriculum.

STEP 3: Problem Behavior(s): Identify problem behaviors

___Tardy_X Fight/physical Aggression ___ Disruptive___ Theft___ UnresponsiveX Inappropriate Language_X__ Insubordination___ Vandalism___ Withdrawn_X__ Verbal Harassment____Work not done___ Other __________ ____X _ Verbally Inappropriate___ Self-injury

Describe problem behavior:C. may have one of the shortest fuses I’ve seen. One little tease by a peer, and he quickly and predictably escalates through a behavioral sequence that begins with passive in subordination (non response), moves to a mild protest, shifts to harassment and name calling, increases to property damage and even to physical aggression. Its interesting that he seems to “enjoy” the reactions he gets from peers that he aggresses toward, and from peers who look up to him for his aggressiveness.

When J. engages in problem behavior immediately disengage from him, & engage peers.

When J. engages in replacement behaviors provide adult attention (discussion)

On days city bus ridden, check in with counselor to review days schedule & walk with counselor to classroom

Give >3 positive acknow-ledgements per min. to peers during transitions.

Give private & quiet corrections to peers.

Remind J. of acceptable & desired replacement behaviors

Teach J. how, when, & where to express verbal protest, & how to walk away from problem situations in transitions.
