FBA to BIP for Educators

October 20 & 27, 2020

This webinar is for those who want to learn more about the process of using a function based approach to develop behavioral intervention plans. Participants will review principles of behavior and the role of function based thinking across all tiers of support. The steps for conducting an FBA will be reviewed along with the critical components of function based BIPs. Participants will explore how to identify students that need an FBA/BIP, and the role of the problem solving team in the process.
