Functional Behavior Assessment
AIS provides Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs) conducted/supervised by BCBAs. At AIS we use various assessments, including VB-MAPP, AFLLS, and FAST. These assessments help to identify language, functional living skills, and the reasons why your loved one is engaging in maladaptive behavior. Our BCBAs will observe your child in your home, in our center, in the community, as well as in a novel, or new setting. This comprehensive evaluation will provide the most accurate representation of your loved one’s needs.
