A number of people have asked about conducting Functional Behavior Assessments and writing Behavior Plans. I’ve attached a procedural manual that I wrote based on literature and web site reviews. It contains ideas for data collection, assessment procedures, example forms, graphing samples and resources. Creating the manual was a big undertaking, but helped me “own” the process little more and consider additional ideas. I urge all practitioners involved in this process to read and come up with a process that works best for you, your team of teachers and most of all your students and their families.
I’ve also uploaded a graphing example for creating graphs from some of the forms referenced in the document (using Excel). Once you create a graph, you can copy and paste it into a word document.
