Is a functional behavioral assessment the same as functional behavioral analysis?

 

No! These terms are often used synonymously but they are not the same. A functional behavioral assessment gathers broad and specific information in order to better understand the precise reason for a student's problem behavior. A component of the functional behavioral assessment is an analysis of the information that has been gathered that results in predictions or hypotheses of what maintains the behavior.

 

Functional behavioral analysis, which may also be called applied behavior analysis, takes functional behavioral assessment a step further. This is a decision-making process that involves testing hypotheses regarding variables or events most strongly related to the occurrence of problem behaviors.

 

What assessments do I have to do when I am completing a functional behavioral assessment?

 

The tools and strategies that you need to include in a functional behavioral assessment depend upon the information you already have related to the what, when, where, who and why of the behavior. Remember that a functional behavioral assessment is a way to gain an understanding of the behavior and why the behavior is reinforcing for the student. With this information appropriate interventions and strategies can be effectively implemented. The depth and breadth of these assessments will vary.

Background, Training Modules and Audio

 

Getting Your Student Calm Enough to Learn

Susan Hawkins, Associate Director, Project ACCESS

Tommy had serious behavioral issues. When he was upset, he struck out at others, and had hit his personal assistant, Mrs. Jones, hard enough to leave bruises. He also hit his head against hard surfaces, leaving a lump on his forehead. Everyone was concerned because they couldn't seem to calm him down when he was upset. They tried everything they knew how to do. Similar behaviors were occurring at home, too. His parents used to be able to hold him until he calmed down, but he has grown and can struggle free from them...

General description of the functional behavioral assessment process

Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Positive Behavioral Support

 

Florida Facilitator's Notebook (in collaboration with the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Positive Behavior Support)

Please Note: The process and tools described in this guide represent a moderate level of rigor involving a structured, organized approach. This degree of rigor is most appropriate for circumstances in which informal problem-solving has failed to resolve behavioral difficulties and a more comprehensive approach is warranted. However, it may be necessary to supplement this manual with additional training and resources in the most complex and challenging cases (e.g., in a few cases experimental manipulation of variables affecting behavior may be warranted).
