Dealing With Problem Behavior

What To Expect

Throughout this process, your analyst is always available to answer questions, work with other therapy providers, provide additional coaching, and modify recommendations as needed.

An FBA is a preferred method of examining problem behavior because it provides information regarding the events that take place immediately before and after a behavior. All behavior has a function or a reason for occurring. FBAs shed light on the environment and how it contributes to your child’s behavior.

At BCOTB, we don’t believe that children are bad or troublesome. We believe that disruptive behaviors are strengthened through consequences and that children are always learning new ways to interact with others. An FBA helps us identify what your child is learning when he or she behaves a certain way and how we can teach new, better ways of behaving.
