Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the importance of utilizing evidence-based and function-based interventions.
  2. select appropriate interventions based upon functional behavioral assessment data.
  3. consult with teachers regarding the use of selected interventions.


Evidence- and function-based interventions demonstrate enhanced student success and promote desirable behavior change. FBAs were conducted on three students to gather data about antecedents and consequences of interfering behaviors in the classroom setting. Interventions were specifically selected for the three students based upon the nature and function of the presenting interfering behaviors. After attending this presentation, participants will understand the selection of the interventions and will be able to consult with teachers regarding their use.
