Developed by Dr. Greg Hanley and FTF Behavioral Consulting, “The practical functional assessment and skill-based treatment process, which prioritizes safety and social acceptability, has proven to be a highly effective and generally applicable approach to treating severe problem behavior.” The focus is identifying when students are happy, relaxed, and engaged and subsequently teaching them positive behavioral skills to get their needs and wants met while maintaining safety, dignity, and televisibility. Most commonly this process has been done in more clinical or private school settings. Our goal is to share how we have implemented the process within public school settings by providing video examples, staff and parent testimonials, and progress of students participating in the process.
