Behavioral Assessments

Children can engage in a variety of behaviors that can impede their ability to learn, grow and socialize. Many children require a behavioral assessment to understanding the function (purpose) of their behaviors.

Children’s Wellness Company can deliver the following behavioral assessments to children and adults :

  • Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)
  • Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VBMAPP)

Social Skills Assessments

When maladaptive behaviors are observed, a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) should be completed. An FBA contains several steps including:

  • An interview with teachers/aides or parents
  • Record reviews
  • Directly observing the child
  • Identifying and defining behaviors
  • Collecting data (frequency, duration, and ABC)
  • Analyzing data
  • Creating a hypothesis to the function of the maladaptive behaviors
  • Implementing an individualized behavior intervention plan (BIP)

A common misconception is that a Functional Behavior Assessment is an intervention, when it is actually a process or tool for understanding the function (purpose) of behavior. The results of an FBA will assist in creating an effective Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP).
