Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP) for Educational Success

In some instances, behavioral challenges can be a major impediment to educational success. Behavioral issues negatively impact attendance, suspensions/expulsions, engagement, access to instruction, and school climate and culture. Students with challenging behaviors or intensive social-emotional needs may require the support of a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) to function successfully in the school setting. In order to create a meaningful, individualized BIP, a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) must first be conducted.


  • Identify when and by whom an FBA may be conducted to ensure a viable, proactive, and student-focused BIP is developed.
  • Dig deeply into the requisite components of an FBA with a focus on choosing appropriate data collection tools based on the individual situation at hand.
  • Discover the ways in which an FBA is used to construct a BIP in order to improve student access and engagement in learning.
  • Immerse themselves in the legal requirements related to the process of creating a compliant BIP.
  • Gain purposeful approaches to the analysis and use of data collected during the FBA/BIP development and documentation in SEIS.
