FUNCTIONAL BEHAVIOR ASSESSMENT IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION Student: Jeff Jones Date of Report: February 21, 2017 Date of Birth: Chronological Age: 12 School Name: Gold School Home Address: Jack and Molly Jones Reporter: Joanna Mackin Reason for Referral Joanna Mackin initiated this Functional Behavior Assessment as a part of the requirements for a graduate class in Behavior Analysis. There were two reasons for selecting Jeff Jones. His, teachers Ms. Mackin and Ms. Hannah Akiyama, as well as his parents were concerned about the lack of growth over the 2015-2016 school year. The
second reason involves the behaviors that are impeding that academic growth. Over the course of the 2015-2016 school year Ms. Mackin & Ms. Akiyama worked with a counselor at Gold School to create a plan that would address the behaviors that were affecting Jeff’s learning. While this plan helped some in the 2015-2016 school year, we continued to see the same behaviors at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year. The behaviors identified for investigation include noncompliance, exaggerated response to physical discomfort, negative statements about himself or others, and difficulty beginning tasks.
