Functional Behavior Assessment: Policy to Practice

Here is my presentation from the Child Mental Health Research and Policy Conference USF.

FBA Across Sectors: Perspective on Behavior Matters

My book, School Success for Kids with Emotional and Behavior Disorders,

Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Prufrock Press

Emphasizes the importance of the adult perspective on a child's behavior.  If the adult sees the behavior as OPPOSITIONAL, the adult will treat the behavior as a POWER PLAY.  But if the adult sees the child's behavior as COMMUNICATION, the adult is far more likely to intervene by TEACHING COMMUNICATION.
