Positive Behavior Support at Home and in the School      
FIFA Manual :

This is a manual created for school personnel to use when involving families in functional behavior assessment and Positive Behavior Support. In general, personnel more familiar with Positive Behavior Support and functional behavior assessment may find the manual more beneficial. The manual contains three sections: Section 1 describes considerations in creating family friendly schools, Section 2 details functional behavior assessment with vignettes to illustrate each step of the process, and the Resource Section offers resources such as forms and checklists that accompany the activities outlined in Sections 1 and 2. Visitors to the web site interested in the manual may contact Bobbie Vaughn, Project Director for more information or download it as a .pdf by clicking on the image to the right. Many forms in the Resource section also may be downloaded from the web site without purchase of the manual.
