The Basic Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) to Behavior Support Plans (BSP) training consists of 7 on-line modules created by Portland State University. The modules should be completed in order with time in between each module to complete the Homework Assignment for hands-on application of the skills learned in each module before moving on to the next module. A pace of about one module per week is recommended, though in some cases more time may be needed to complete the Homework tasks assigned in a module.
Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) Dear Colleague Letter from August 2016 emphasizes the requirement that schools provide positive behavioral supports to students with disabilities who need them and clarifies that the repeated use of disciplinary actions may suggest that children with disabilities may not be receiving appropriate behavioral interventions and supports.
