Behavioral Intervention Plans
A behavioral intervention plan is a plan that is based on the results of a functional behavioral assessment (FBA) and, at a minimum, includes a description of the problem behavior, global and specific hypotheses as to why the problem behavior occurs and intervention strategies that include positive behavioral supports and services to address the behavior.

Functional Behavioral Assessment
A functional behavioral assessment (FBA) means the process of determining why a student engages in behaviors that impede learning and how the student’s behavior relates to the environment.

Time Out Rooms
“Time Out” is a technique used to interrupt an unacceptable behavior by removing the student from the situation where the misbehavior is occurring. The State does not regulate the use of time out, but does regulate the use of a separate room where a student may be removed for purposes of “time out.”
