Functional Assessment-Based Interventions

A functional assessment-based intervention (FABI) is a systematic approach used to support students with the most intensive intervention needs with the goal of teaching students functionally equivalent replacement behaviors to support them in enjoying a high quality life. Umbreit, Ferro, Liaupsin, and Lane (2007) developed a systematic approach to identifying maintaining function(s) of target behaviors and designing interventions (BIP) directly linked to results of the functional behavior assessment (FBA).  In these materials, you will find resources to help you design, implement, and evaluate FABIs in your setting with this systematic approach. These include, brief video modules introducing this systematic five-step process and implementation materials to support your efforts.
