Functional Behavior Assessment: Mining the Data for Gold

Learning how to Assess the Data

   Watch Promo   Enroll in Course

This presentation will take you through ten days of real data. We will show you how to mine the data to determine the triggers compared to the behaviors you want to target and the impact of those behaviors. In other words, you will learn how to read the data to determine when it is going to show up and identify what the student is trying to gain or escape by engaging in the behavior.

Data-based decision making is one of the most important factors in tertiary support. At the end of this presentation, you will see a download for a free tool that graphs antecedent, behavior, and consequence data for you. This tool is phenomenal. It is downloaded over 3,000 times per month.

You will receive four hours of Continuing Education Credit for this course. While the video is approximately two hours in length, the discussion points and assessment times built into the training will take you approximately four hours. This can be done as a stand-alone training for one person, or it can easily be done in a professional development session with the entire staff. You can spread it out over several weeks. This is part of my six month course on Building Behavioral Expertise in Your School.

Dr. Laura A Riffel
Dr. Laura A Riffel
Dr. Riffel began her career in the early 70’s working at the school for the blind. This led to her love of children and special education. She has taught pre-kindergarten through adults in general and special education over the years. She always loved working with students who had challenging behaviors.
In the early 2000’s, she began her career as a behavior scientist and eventually directed a statewide program serving any child who had behaviors that impeded their learning. While her staff helped students across the state, she ran a day clinic for students with severe behaviors. She trained local staff to work with the student, stabilized the student’s behaviors, and eventually helped the group move back to the home school. After restabilization, a classroom was built around the highly trained local team and the stable student. This process was very successful. Dr. Riffel also began doing seminars all over the state to help schools implement their PBIS program at the universal, targeted, and intensive levels.

Dr. Riffel is retired now from public education and presents seminars around the world on behavior at the universal, targeted, and intensive levels. She posts materials on her website www.behaviordoctor.org and answers emails from all over the world to help educators brainstorm ideas to ameliorate behaviors.

Here's what people have to say about a Behavior Doctor Seminar: "Nobody wants to give up a Saturday near the end of a hectic school year to attend another training on how to deal with disruptions in the classroom, however I cannot stress enough how beneficial Dr. Riffel’s training was for me professionally. Her upbeat seminar was both honest and engaging, you could feel the love and picture yourself in many of her scenarios. Having a speaker that has lived through some of the nightmares we deal with on a daily basis was energizing, and the tools she delivered were things we all can do to make our classroom an energizing learning zone. This is a must for any teacher that has a student who needs that extra bit of encouragement to become the best person they can be, and any teacher that needs some new tricks for their bag."
