A Workshop on How to Conduct a Functional (Behaviour) Assessment (FBA)

Are you a teacher or counsellor who wants to learn how to conduct a Functional (Behaviour) Assessment on a child? A FBA is the process of gathering and analyzing information about a child’s challenging behavior to determine the purpose or intent of the actions in order to intervene appropriately. A FBA (based on ABA principles) includes the following assumptions:

  • Challenging behavior does not occur in a vacuum
  • Behavior occurs in response to an identifiable stimuli (event)
  • Behaviors are governed (weakened or strengthened) by the consequences that follow them

The participants will learn:

  • When to conduct a FBA
  • How to conduct a FBA
  • Why data collection is so valuable

When: 9am.-3pm. Monday, 29 January 2018
Where: LDAS, Centre of Excellence, Saskatoon at 2221 Hanselman Crt., Saskatoon, SK
Cost: $150 (includes light lunch) and materials
Phone: To register please call 306-652-4921
Facilitator: Cassandra Phillips, BA, MA, PhD
