A Functional Behavior Assessment Checklist is an important tool for educators and behavioral health professionals to help identify the underlying causes of challenging behaviors to create effective intervention plans. This checklist allows them to collect data and analyze behavior patterns, which can help isolate environmental triggers that may be exacerbating or causing the problematic behavior. With this information, educators and professionals can develop strategies to reduce or eliminate the behaviors, while also helping students learn more effective behaviors and better comprehend their environment.
