Our multi-method FBA and multi-component BIP process is based on best practices in the field and compliant with federal and state regulations. Our FBAs include the use of several methods in order to identify appropriate target behaviors and develop function-based hypothesis or summary statement for each problem behavior.
Specifically, we review student records, conduct interviews across informants (e.g., teacher, parent, student) and conduct direct behavior observations in order to develop data-based hypotheses regarding performance of student behavior. Our BIPs include multiple components including prevention strategies, teaching strategies, reinforcement and incentive strategies, and corrective strategies in addition to provisions for effectively monitoring student response to intervention and the compliance and fidelity with which behavioral supports are provided by school personnel. Fluency Plus, LLC personnel work collaboratively with Teacher Support Teams (TSTs) and Individualized Education Program (IEP) committees to tailor behavior supports to identified student needs.
We use a multi-method assessment process to evaluate the behavioral and emotional concerns of referred students consistent with best practices in the field and federal and state regulations. Specifically, we review student records, conduct interviews across informants (e.g., teacher, parent, student), conduct direct behavior observations, analyze the results of psychometric assessments, analyze the results of global and behavior-specific standardized rating scales, and evaluate student response to academic and behavioral interventions implemented with fidelity to recommend appropriate diagnoses and eligibilities to school personnel in addition to providing data-based recommendations for effectively addressing identified referral concerns.
