In Tier 2 of a prevention model, FBA is applied to at-risk students in a school. The purpose of FBA at Tier 2 is to determine the function of a student’s problem behavior in order to match the student to an effective intervention. The new source of data collected at this tier in order to determine the antecedents and consequence of problem behavior is brief interviews with teachers. Existing data from Tier 1 such as office discipline referrals are also reviewed along with students’ general school records. The data are organized into a precision hypothesis statement and students are matched to evidence-based interventions that fit the identified function of their behavior. Chapter 5 concludes with an illustrative case study of a Tier 2 FBA.
