Behavioral interventions stemming from a FBA are more effective than those not function-related, with the quality of FBAs positively correlating with student outcomes. Trial-based functional analysis (TBFA) can efficiently confirm FBA results, enhancing the effectiveness of function-based interventions, and training school personnel and ABA providers in systematic TBFA can enhance school capacity to assess challenging behaviors. This session from the 2021 Michigan Autism Conference illustrates a model for preparing service providers to conduct TBFA, supported by data from single-case design studies.

Behavioral interventions developed from a functional behavior assessment (FBA) are more likely to be effective than interventions that are not function-related (Carr, 1994). Further, the quality and fidelity of FBAs are positively correlated with student educational outcomes including reduction in challenging behavior, increases in appropriate behavior, and improved academic performance (Cook et al., 2012). Trial-based functional analysis (TBFA) can be used as an effective and efficient approach to confirm FBA results, thereby increasing the likelihood for effective function-based intervention. Preparing school personnel and ABA providers to conduct systematic TBFAs with fidelity is one means of increasing school capacity to assess student challenging behaviors. This session will illustrate a model to prepare service providers to conduct TBFA. Data from single case design studies evaluating this model will be presented.
