Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)
FBA is a series of assessments used to comprehensively evaluate the language and communication, social, play, self-care, (pre)academic, adaptation skills of the client. A Functional Assessment Interview (FAI) with parents and/or school personnel, direct behavioral observation, and Stimulus Preference Assessments (SPA) are just a few of the methods of assessment. FBA is extremely useful in understanding the current level of client’s abilities while helping to create an individualized behavioral intervention plan (BIP). The BIP is a set of individualized in-home and/or school ABA program goals. It also helps determine the most effective structure of the behavioral intervention in the home, school, and community environments.
