A behavior analyst studies students with behaviors that are interfering with the educational process to a significant degree. The behaviors may be the direct manifestation of a disability, or learned behaviors that significantly disrupt learning for the student and / or classmates.
BCBAs focus on behaviors that can be observed and measured through data collection. They try to find specific influences and look for new ways to replace behaviors with more appropriate responses.
BCBAs are adept at completing a Functional Behavior Analysis, developing a Behavior Intervention Plan from the FBA, and assisting teachers and staff who work with a child in the implementation of the BIP in an appropriate, consistent manner using integrity and fidelity. Expectations include direct contact with children, but the primary responsibility is providing consultation, support, and professional development to special education teachers, regular education teachers, and other building personnel to meet functional needs of students with challenging behaviors.
