Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) & Behavior Support Plan (BSP)
A Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) is a process that identifies specific target behavior, the purpose of the behavior and what factors maintain the behavior that is interfering with the student's educational progress.
A Behavior Support Plan (BSP) is a plan that assists a school team in building positive behaviors to replace or reduce a challenging/dangerous behavior. This plan may include teaching, improved communication, increasing relationships and using clinical interventions.
While FBA/BSPs can be a Tier II intervention, they are an expectation when a student is in need of a Tier III intervention.
