Functional Behavior Assessment

Completing a Functional Behavior Assessment to Determine Effective Interventions for Challenging Behavior (3-Part, In-Person Series at Napa County SELPA).

In this series, participants will increase their skill in completing a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) that leads to effective identification of replacement behavior and appropriate intervention.


This training will be presented in-person at the Napa County Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) Office.
The exact address and room number will be provided once your registration is confirmed.

  • Mon, Oct 24 (1:00 pm - 4:00 pm) - Determining the Function (Part 2)
    Use collected data to determine a hypothesis for why problem behavior is occurring. The session will discuss how to analyze data to determine the function, especially when there are multiple contributing factors impacting the behavior.
  • Mon, Dec 19 (1:00 pm - 4:00 pm) - Designing Function Driven Replacement Behaviors and Putting It All Together (Part 3)
