When conducting school-based FBA’s there are additional factors that often need to be considered relative to completing FBA’s in other settings. We will address several of these factors, including potential barriers that should be considered when conducting a school-based FBA. Additionally, we will review the components needed for completing a meaningful school-based FBA along with providing examples of ways to link the results of your assessment to appropriate school-based interventions.

    Materials and Handouts are not provided, but the presenters mentioned that we can email them to request copies. The PPT is also not provided, so pause and type or write your notes as you watch. Other than that, great CEU!
