FBA-BIP Follow Up: Plan TA

This session is specifically designed for FBA/BIP facilitators who have already been trained in FBA/BIP and are currently developing individualized plans for students. In this session we will use live student plans to dig deeper and gain a greater understanding of how to do Function Based Assessments so that the hypothesis statement is accurate and can guide the BIP development process, how to identify function-based strategies to help strengthen the BIPs, and how to continue to help our stakeholders engage in function-based thinking to make our plans as effective as possible. Please come to this session with a completed Competing Behavior Pathway and Behavior Intervention Plan completed on one student from your setting. Please make sure all identifying information is taken off of your document. These plans will be used to facilitate the learning process throughout the day.
