HLP10 - FBAs and Behavior Plans for Students who are DHH

RMTC-D/HH dives into the tenth high-leverage practice (HLP) from the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR) Center and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC)’s publication High-Leverage Practices in Special Education. HLP10 states, “Conduct functional behavioral assessments (FBAs) to develop individual student behavior support plans.” Learn about how using the multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) process can help prevent, teach, and reinforce behaviors, particularly for students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH).

This video was made in collaboration with the Florida Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Project (FL PBIS).

Music written and performed by Samuel McIntire.
