Writing a Behavioral Intervention Plan Based on a Functional Behavior Assessment Two Day Seminar Book Excerpt:

Dr. Riffel developed a training for Functional Behavior Assessments and Behavioral Intervention Planning after working in a statewide program and assisting schools with Tier Three behavior. She developed a system that is so easy to use, a kindergarten teacher with 25 students could still collect the necessary data to make data-based decisions for a student. This book is set up to be a two-day training where participants learn on day one the data that is being sought and how to analyze it by hand. On day two, the participants learn how to enter this data into a free easy-to-use FBA Data Tool that graphs ABC data and makes data-based decision making even easier.

Classroom Management Through Behavioral Interventions That Work Tier Two Strategies Book Excerpt:

This book focuses on tier two strategies for classroom management. When teachers feel empowered with information, classroom management is easier. This book is filled with specific strategies based on Dr. Riffel's Triple T- Triple R chart. The three T's are 1) Trigger (what sets the behavior in motion), 2) Target (what behavior do you want to target for change), and 3) impacT (what is the student gaining or escaping by engaging in this behavior). The three R's to combat the three T's are 1) Revise the environment (set the student up for success by changing the environment, 2) Replace the behavior (Teach the student what you want to see instead of telling them what not to do, and 3) Reframe your response (change how you react to the target behavior and feed the replacement behavior. When these three formats are followed, the behavior dissipates. This book also includes specific strategies on many common classroom target behaviors. This book coincides with Dr. Riffel's Tier Two Training.
