Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)

FBAs are conducted to identify environmental and interpersonal influences on skill acquisition and challenging behavior in order to inform instructional and intervention programming. Consultants perform FBA through indirect and descriptive methods that entail direct observation, review of data, informant interview, and administration of rating scales and questionnaires such as the Motivation Assessment Scale (MAS), Functional Analysis Screening Tool (FAST), Functional Analysis Interview (FAI), and Questions About Behavior Function (QABF).

Educational Assessment

The purpose of educational assessment is to evaluate student progress within specific instructional and academic areas, to assess learning outcome, and to specify Individualized Education Program (IEP) objectives. These assessment procedures frequently include administration of standardized instruments such as the Vineland-II Adaptive Behavior Scales, the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills-Revised (ABLLS-R), and the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP).

At-Risk Assessment

The focus of at-risk assessment is to assist public schools and other educational and community-care settings in determining the severity and potential risk of children, youth, and adults who exhibit challenging behavior such as self-injury, threats of harm, elopement, and school refusal. These consultation services incorporate FBA methods and administration of standardized instruments such as the Child & Adolescent Needs and Strengths Manual (CANS-MH).

45-Day In-District Evaluation

Students at high-risk for out-placement are evaluated within their public school district to determine necessary services and supports. Evaluation concentrates on functional behavioral assessment, behavior support priorities, environmental considerations, documented educational progress, and IEP learning objectives. The evaluation produces a comprehensive report of findings and recommendations.

Physical Restraint Intervention. The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has issued new regulations for implementing physical restraint with students attending public and private schools. This workshop reviews the DESE regulations and the impact they have on student discipline practices, preparation of behavior support plans, and staff training. The emphasis is on selecting effective implementation strategies that align with the DESE regulations.

Staff Training and Performance Management. This workshop considers evidence-based methods for training staff at all levels to implement instructional and behavior support procedures with students. Additional content covers methods to support staff performance after training and developing successful supervision practices.

Working Collaboratively with Families. Staff will learn contemporary strategies for working collaboratively with families on matters of educational planning, behavior support, school-home cooperation, and related matters. Some of the topics addressed in this workshop include dispute resolution, resolving conflict, teaching problem-solving skills, and managing stress.

These “best practices” workshops target students with specific diagnoses such as autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and anxiety disorders, among others. The most effective assessment and intervention methods with each diagnostic category are explained and demonstrated.
