What are the school's obligations for a child with behavior problems?

Parents, teachers and administrators need to know about the right to FAPE, the role of the IEP team, functional behavior assessments, and behavior intervention plans.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, we answer questions about behavior assessments, positive intervention plans and supports, and what you can do to get help for children with behavior problems. You will also find behavior & discipline parenting and teaching tips.
