Functional Assessments serve to identify the function of behavior and are used to formulate treatment recommendations contained in Positive Behavior Support or Positive Behavior Intervention Plans (PBS & PBIP). The length of time required to complete Functional Assessments and develop a PBS or PBIP is determined on an individual basis. The average duration is 8-12 hours.
We provide behavioral support and/or consultation for individuals or on a class-wide basis in the following areas: The completion of Functional Analyses of problematic behavior(s), the formulation of both Positive Behavior Support Plans (PBS) and Positive Behavior Intervention Plans (PBIP), the development of goals, the monitoring of progress for goals identified in current Individualized Education Plans (IEP), class the development and implementation of individualized and class-wide motivational and management systems and the delivery and development of legally-defensible, behaviorally-based curriculum and programming.
