The research literature on the use of Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA) to develop Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP) for students with emotional/behavioral disorders, who present problem classroom behaviors for use in the schools, is well documented. There are school-wide, district-wide, and state-wide plans that are currently being implemented to satisfy the requirements imposed by IDEA (2004). The results from this study indicate that both participants experienced a significant reduction in their problem behaviors. The FBA-based self-management intervention procedure was both less intrusive on the teacher’s instructional time and effective, and can easily be incorporated into a student’s BIP.
