Wednesday, February 24, 2021 -

Registration Link:

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires IEP Teams consider the use of positive behavioral interventions and support to address behaviors that interfere with a student’s learning or the learning of others. Parents and caregivers know their children best and are vital members of the IEP team. Identifying and understanding how positive behavioral interventions and support are incorporated into the IEP helps parents and caregivers fully participate in the IEP process, and help schools meet their child’s needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify positive behavioral interventions and support.
  • Understand how positive behavioral interventions and support are incorporated into the IEP.
  • Understand how a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) can help identify positive behavioral interventions and support.
