A functional behavioral assessment, when used in the context of positive behavioral supports, is a method of developing an understanding of the function (purpose) of a person’s challenging behavior and identifying positive ways to help the person have more effective and efficient ways of getting their needs met, preventing the occurance of the behavior and changing other’s responses so the behavior isn’t reinforced.
