Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders may need supports and treatments  around behaviors. Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA is one of the treatments an individual with an Autism Spectrum Diagnosis may consider. Behavior analysis is a scientific approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment.

Children and youth with Autism may have a Functional Behavior Assessment conducted as part of their IEP or 504 plan.  The purpose of doing an FBA is to help develop a behavior plan to understand the behaviors and support the youth in the school setting.  Input should be gathered from a team that includes parents, teachers, related service providers and paraprofessionals and the student. There should be one person as the FBA coordinator who should have training and experience in conducting FBAs.
