ABA at Building Bridges also offers Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)

A Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) refers to a group of assessment procedures that are used to help us understand the reason why problem behavior occurs, so that we can best provide intervention services. In other words, by determining the reasons why problem behavior occurs, we can recommend, design, and implement an intervention that directly addresses those reasons.  An FBA may include, but is not limited to: interviews with parents or other caregivers, rating scales completed by adults familiar with the problem behavior, direct observation and data collection in the natural environment, a formal analysis providing a comprehensive and a systematic method for confirming the function of a behavior. This is needed when a child has problem behavior that is interfering with his home, family or school life. If a parent or teacher do not know what else to do to for a child with behavioral challenges, we can help!
