Description: Practitioners often work with individuals with severe behavior problems such as aggression, tantrums, self-injury, pica and rumination. Although graduate classes provide some basic training application to practice is challenging, even for experienced practitioners. The purpose of this workshop is to provide instruction and problem solving in developing, writing and using Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs), Behavior Support Plans (BSPs), Behavioral Skills Training and solving common challenges in implementation. The workshop will: (a) describe the minimum components of a functional behavior assessment (FBA) and provide good and bad examples of FBAs and examples of indicated and contraindicated intervention strategies; (b) describe the common elements of adequate behavior support plan (BSP) based on the FBAs’ (c ) describe how to translate the FBA into an adequate BSP using evidence-based practices; present and illustrate the application of task analysis of a BSP; (d) describe the steps in Behavior Skills Training (BST) as applied to teaching replacement behaviors, other prevention strategies, and responding to the replacement and target behaviors; (5) describe solutions to common implementation problems; and (6) illustrate the application of peer support for practitioners.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to: (1) describe the minimum components of a functional behavior assessment (FBA); (2) write a behavior support plan (BSP) based on the FBA; (3) Write a task analysis of a BSP; (4) Describe the steps in Behavior Skills Training (BST); and (5) state solutions to common implementation problems.
