How We Can Help
Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) / Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) Program Development
Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) is a problem-solving process for addressing student problem behavior. It relies on a variety of techniques and strategies to identify the purposes of specific behavior and to help school teams (including IEP teams) select interventions to directly address the problem behavior.
A FBA focuses on identifying significant, pupil-specific social, affective, cognitive, and/or environmental factors associated with the occurrence (and non-occurrence) of specific behaviors. This broader perspective offers a better understanding of the function or purpose behind student behavior. A Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP) is developed based on the findings of the FBA.
CESA 6 offers a variety of staff development opportunities tailored to your school district. Our staff is experienced in conducting FBAs and BIPs for individual students as “independent evaluators” or consultants.
NVCI (Non-Violent Crisis Intervention)
A Practical Approach for Managing Violent Behavior
The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention program is a safe, non-harmful behavior management system designed to aid educators and other human service professionals in the management of disruptive, assaultive people even in the most violent moments.
Prevention and management of aggressive and violent behavior has become an essential skill pertinent to all staff in the educational field. The need for safe, effective techniques to manage the potentially assaultive person is no longer limited to those who work in hospitals/institutions or segregated settings.
Educational providers need safe, effective behavior management training designed to maintain the care, welfare, safety and security of all involved in the intervention process.
