Based on the data analysis, students will develop hypotheses regarding the functions of behavior, and create an appropriate behavior intervention plan that is aligned with the identified functions. Students will compile this information in report form, including the graphic display of data, in accordance with New York State Guidelines for Functional Behavior Assessments and Behavior Intervention Plans.
