Functional Behaviour Assessment
Assessment of behaviour in different settings to establish areas of need. A Functional Behaviour Assessment (FBA) is conducted to inform the Behaviour Support Plan (BSP).
When you understand what the person is communicating through their behaviour, you are able to develop strategies to better support them.
Behavioural Support may include looking at ways to improve the person’s quality of life, making sure their environment (such as where they are living) meets their needs, and teaching the person new skills or ways to communicate.
We can provide an assessment to help everyone understand what a person is communicating through their behaviour. This may involve:
Depending on the person’s needs, we may develop both a Positive Behaviour Support Plan and a Skill development Plan. These plans look at:
Families and carers may also need education and training around how to implement the recommended strategies. Our team can help make sure everyone understands the plan and that the plan is effective.
